Hulu is celebrating Women’s History Month by bringing viewers a wide selection of TV series, films and documentaries featuring women in front of and behind the camera. The celebration includes the launch of “Defining Moments,” a documentary series that provides an intimate look at 10 people who have left impacts on their communities and broader culture.
Beginning March 5, “Defining Moments” is featuring different subjects as they navigate moments in their lives that forged them into making change. The first episode features “Pose” actress and LGBTQ advocate Dominique Jackson and details the first Christmas in 20 years that Jackson shared with her estranged mother. New episodes of the series will be released monthly on Hulu and YouTube and will feature stories from Sophia Chang, Amy Purdy and Jameela Jamil.
Hulu is also curating this content into three different female-centric collections. Collections include:
- “Written & Directed by Women” (March 1-31), featuring titles such as “The Mindy Project,” “Dollface” and Booksmart, that break stereotypes around women in the industry;
- “International Women’s Day” (March 8), honoring iconic women throughout history and entertainment, including new Hulu Original, Hillary, an intimate portrait of former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton; and
- “Made by Her” (March 15-31), which spotlights content on Hulu that was awarded the ReFrame stamp, which serves as a mark of distinction for projects that put women in leadership roles across major areas of production.
To help further drive gender parity in film and TV, Hulu has partnered with ReFrame, a partnership co-founded and led by Sundance Institute and Women in Film Los Angeles, to support ReFrame Rise. The ReFrame Rise program, of which Hulu is a 2020 sponsor, provides high-level endorsement and career acceleration for eight experienced female directors who are poised to lead commercial features and high-profile television shows.
