Donia Hames Love


Executive Producer

Being raised by activists in the Deep South, Donia lives with a unique thirst for peace and equality. Daughter of Margie Pitts Hames, attorney of Doe v Bolton sister case to Roe v Wade, Donia was raised amongst protests, marches, and fundraisers and brought up respecting the family, friends, and power brokers of the 70’s and 80’s political scene such as Jimmy Carter, Mayor Maynard Jackson, Andrew Young, Gloria Steinem and more. “Having the Roe and Doe cases overturned, we were all in shock, and now are creating a call to action to organize and unify behind a woman’s right to choose. Telling the stories of how my mother and other crusading women of the time fought for a woman’s autonomy and created 50 years of safe woman’s reproductive health care is so important now as those rights are being systematically stripped away.” Following her path devoted to teaching love, Donia has sought to heal the world rather than fight it. Or could you feed it well? She worked as a wine educator in Napa Valley at Schramsberg Vineyards and Joseph Phelps Vineyards and assisted in creating Gott’s Roadside. Donia owned Carrboro Yoga Company, dedicated to building community and offering alternative ways to look at the world within the deep South through philosophical alternatives. After moving back to California, she made an underground ecstatic dance during the pandemic lockdown to unite a community within social distancing standards in vast outdoor expanses of nature. She and her partner filmed the documentary ‘Dist-Dance!’ which premiered at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival and garnered laurels in Bangkok, Istanbul, and Japan.

Currently, she is offering healing and holding space at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California, and calling in the women’s movement elite to create a documentary about the origins of reproductive freedom and its relevance today.
