Feminist activist Gloria Steinem will explore problems affecting women across the globe, including child marriage in Zambia and sexual assault in the U.S. military, in “Woman,” her new (and first) TV show for Viceland, a new network from Vice geared towards Millennials.
The show, which was produced by a team of almost all women, will comprise of eight episodes and is set to premiere on Tuesday, the New York Times reported.
“What I hope is, seeing it will be the closest thing to being on the ground yourself,” Steinem said. “It is being a witness. And people in hard times need a witness, and somebody who can help.”
“I think she’s a hero,” Shane Smith, a Vice founder, said of Steinem.
