NEW YORK (AP) — Gloria Steinem will host and produce a new television series on the Viceland network about the political impact of violence against women throughout the world.
Viceland said Monday that the series, which will be called “Woman,” will premiere on May 10.
As executive producer, Steinem is leading a team of all-female journalists working on the series. Planned episodes will report on sexual violence in the Congo, sexual assault within the U.S. military and extremism in Pakistan.
The network, a collaboration between Vice Media and the A&E networks, has been struggling to find an audience since launching two months ago.
