Four actresses will be playing Steinem at various points in her life, with Alicia Vikander cast to play her from ages 20-40, and Julianne Moore playing her beyond 40.[1] Bette Midler was cast later that month.[2] Lulu Wilson was cast in November.[3] In December, Janelle Monáe was cast to play Dorothy Pitman Hughes.[4] In January 2019, it was announced Timothy Hutton and Lorraine Toussaint had joined the cast of the film.[5][6]
