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.

Hosted and produced by Cynthia Bemis Abrams

Advanced TV Herstory takes TV’s portrayal of motherhood very seriously. There’s a long and wonderful list of memorable TV moms… from sitcoms to dramas and more than a few fun and smart ones found in daytime TV.

In this segment of Advanced TV Herstory, we’re going to look in depth at the episode in which Murphy gives birth to her son Avery and the fanfare that led up to it. In many ways, this delivery segment was every bit as herstory-making as Lucy heading off to the hospital to deliver little Ricky.
