Thousands of comedies, dramas & news shows have aired, yet the presence of strong women – both in front of and behind the camera - is often a story untold. Advanced TV Herstory believes it’s all worth telling and re-telling.

Sometimes shows offer great leadership lessons or are so timeless in their writing that people say the series has aged very well. We’ll revisit moments in TV where women broke records, exceeded expectations or put their careers on the line. Advanced TV Herstory connects the treasures & moments of the past and places it into context of American life, for women, today.

Tomorrow’s success is rooted in understanding what has come before us. Knowledge is power. So gear up for a little storytelling and fun, sociology, fashion, economics or strategy. It’s all here in Advanced TV Herstory.
