A screening tour for a documentary on groundbreaking women is set to kick off May 30 in Taipei City as part of Taiwan-U.S. efforts to strengthen cultural exchanges and celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Taiwan Relations Act (TRA40).

Co-organized by the Ministry of Culture and the American Institute in Taiwan, the tour is showcasing a 58-minute movie comprised of selected episodes from “Time Firsts: Women Who Are Changing the World,” a short documentary series by Taiwan-American filmmaker Diane Tsai and released by U.S.-based Time magazine.

Figures profiled in the 24 works featured in the compilation include former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, LGBTQ rights advocate and TV show host Ellen DeGeneres, architect Maya Lin, astronaut Kathryn Sullivan and tennis player Serena Williams.
