Women make up more than half of the US, but men’s stories still dominate our movie screens. Clearly, gender equality in Hollywood has a long way to go.
They’re excited to help make the big screen more representative by co-producing the new documentary This Changes Everything with executive producer Geena Davis and director Tom Donahue.
“Our partnership with Tom Donahue and the film was a natural fit for our brand given our mutual commitment to equal opportunity,” says Hannah Broadhurst of Lyft’s Culture & Entertainment team. “This Changes Everything sheds new light on an incredibly important conversation and we are proud to be able to help bring the film to our riders, drivers, and ACLU partners.”
This Changes Everything takes a hard, honest look at the rampant gender discrimination that happens all too often on Hollywood sets. And it’s full of interviews with some of the most inspiring and powerful women in Hollywood: Meryl Streep, Shonda Rhimes, Reese Witherspoon, Yara Shahidi, Tiffany Haddish, and more.
For one night only, July 22, 2019, we’re hosting screenings of This Changes Everything at theaters in New York, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Philadelphia. And They’re covering your ticket!
They ask that you please RSVP and then opt into Round Up & Donate to support the ACLU. (We’ll show you how to do this below.) They’re also inviting top women drivers in these cities to watch as well.
“We will continue to partner with projects that champion these causes alongside individuals who share our common values,” says Broadhurst.
