Steinem is best known for being a spokeswoman for the feminist movement in the ’60s and ’70s as well as a bestselling author. In 2016, she was honored with the Presidental Medal of Freedom by former President Barack Obama.

The movie will be directed and co-written by Julie Taymor, best known for her work on Frida starring Selma BlairIn an interview with Entertainment Weekly after the film’s Sundance launch, Taymor revealed why she was inspired to do a project about Steinem.

“I’ve been directing a long time, and I’ve gone through a lot of stuff. And for a long time, I kept my blinders on and said there is no such thing as misogyny. Until I got it really bad on a show,” Taymor said. “Gloria came to my side and she said ‘It’s OK. I get it. Been there. Done that.'”

In anticipation of Taymor’s film, fans are currently sharing their excitement about the first look at the Amazon Prime original movie.
