CINCINNATI – Newsy, the national news network for the next generation, has launched its latest original series, "A Woman's Job," profiling women who are redefining what it means to build a career in male-dominated fields. View the trailer here.
"A Woman's Job" will premiere March 8 in Washington, D.C., at an event hosted by Newsy and the National Press Club as part of International Women's Day. The event will include a screening of the first two episodes and will feature a panel discussion with Dr. Jen Welter, the first woman to coach in the NFL; Patrice Banks, mechanic and founder of Girls Auto Clinic; and Angela Greiling Keane, former president of the National Press Club and a deputy technology editor at Politico Pro. Welter and Banks are both profiled in the series.
In the six-part series, reporter Noor Tagouri shares these stories and more, highlighting working women's successes as well as the challenges they face as pioneers in their fields.
"Women make up just under half the labor force, and yet they're significantly underrepresented in more than 100 occupations, making up 25 percent or less of the workforce in those industries," said Christina Hartman, Newsy's vice president of news. "'A Woman's Job' spotlights women who are breaking into traditionally male-dominated fields and becoming professional role models for women across the world."
Episodes will air each Wednesday and can be viewed on any of Newsy's channels on over-the-top platforms including Hulu, Sling TV, Roku, Apple TV, Watchable from Comcast, Amazon Fire TV and Pluto TV. "A Woman's Job" can also be found online at newsy.com and via the Newsy apps for iOS, Android and Kindle Fire. For more information, visit newsy.com/awomansjob.
