Womens Equality Day: HBO Max Unveils So She Did Campaign, Film; Hulu Launches Animated Series

Refresh for updates….

Today is Women’s Equality Day in the U.S., celebrated each year on August 26 to commemorate the 1920 adoption of the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits the states and federal government from denying the right to vote to U.S. citizens on the basis of sex.

In honor of the day, HBO Max has unveiled its “So She Did” Campaign initiative, along with a short film that celebrates the women who have been told they are “too much,” the ones who break all the rules to be who they authentically are. The film features Jordan Alexander (Gossip Girl), Laura Donnelly (The Nevers), Susie Essman (Curb), Myha’la Herrold (Industry), Martha Plimpton (Genera+ion), Lisa Ling (CNN’s This is Life with Lisa Ling), Hannah Einbinder (Hacks), Zion Moreno (Gossip Girl) and Eyricka Lanvin (Legendary).
