If in the future we have the luxury of forgetting what necessitated a nationwide Women’s March the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration, Resisterhood reminds us, opening with a medley of Trump’s greatest hits from 2016–17 alone. Nevertheless, the mood of this documentary is joyous as it explores the various avenues women, in particular, take toward activism in our time and catalogs, for the record, the injustices that have brought about protests in the last 3 years. At the same time, in focusing on the great granddaughter of a suffragette and the granddaughter of a slave, a young LGBTQ athlete, and an Egyptian-American grandmother running for Chicago city council, the film also suggests that ours is not a time out of joint but part of a continuum. A historical document for the future, and a tonic inspiration for the present, it reminds us, “This is what democracy looks like.”—Judy Bloch
