100 Years

January 17, 2017 | 7 minutes
Directed by: Lena Dunham, Kirsten Lepore
The animated short tells the story of Planned Parenthood, starting just over a century ago when nurse Margaret Sanger decided she would not rest until she "was able to give women the knowledge to control birth." "100 Years" features narration from Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Schumer, Mindy Kaling, America Ferrera and Constance Wu, and walks viewers through the opening of Sanger's first birth control clinic, the development of the Pill, Roe v. Wade, and more — documenting how far women's reproductive rights have come in the last 100 years.
