According to the Hollywood Reporter, a new documentary about famed feminist attorney Gloria Allred will soon be available to stream on Netflix, following its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January.

The film, called Seeing Allred, is directed by Sophia Sartain and Roberta Grossman. It reportedly focuses on Allred’s outspokenness against many powerful, allegedly sexually abusive men—Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinstein, and President Donald Trump being among the most prominent—and her championing of the #MeToo movement.

Trevor Groth, Sundance director of programming, told THR on Wednesday that, due to the persistently newsworthy nature of the film’s subject, its directors anticipate having to make final adjustments to the documentary right up until the last minute. “The filmmakers did notify us that they were going to continue shooting to add to the documentary as all of the allegations were breaking,” Groth said. “So, there is a real sort of timely quality to that film.”

Here’s hoping for a day when everything awful no longer exists in a constant state of timeliness.

Remarkable to think about.... she has been helping women have a public voice for decades, slowly creating momentum to the point where Harvey Weinstein, Roy Moore, Matt Lauer, etc., etc, etc..... are all being held to account for their women-abusing fuckery, and might ultimately result in the downfall of our pussy-grabber-in-chief. She has gone from an attorney to an historical figure.
