Knock Down The House

The women who took on the US Congress. Congresswoman bad ass Democrat Governor from Bronx NY @AOC Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a cultural icon – the millennial face of US politics – before she went for Congress she was working as a waitress. Netflix’s political documentary, Knock Down the House, chronicles Ocasio-Cortez and three other women civilians-turned-politicians, Paula Jean Swearengin, Amy Vilela, and Cori Bush, fighting for social justice and more diverse representation in US congress.

Four female candidates — each driven by personal experience and hardship — enter the 2018 race for Congress, challenging powerful incumbents for a spot at the table and a voice in government. This emotional documentary follows their campaigns. Emotional is the right word, I had to fell a tear.
