Rashida Jones said she feels under siege addressing women’s issues in her Netflix docuseries “Hot Girls Wanted: Turned On” in the era of President Donald Trump.

“It’s more important than it’s ever been before to tell these kinds of stories because we’re at war,” Jones told TheWrap CEO Sharon Waxman at the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday.

“We’ve blatantly voted in a man who brags about sexual assault and who normalized it,” said Jones, who returned to Sundance with fellow executive producer Ronna Gradus and the follow-up to their 2015 debut film “Hot Girls Wanted,” a feature documentary about the effects of internet pornography at the festival.

“This is our opportunity to say it’s not normal and it shouldn’t be normal and we’ve got to talk about it,” Jones continued. “There’s no amount of tweeting and authoritarian behavior that’s going to shut us up.”
