Female journalist tells the stories of groundbreaking women, who then nominate their own Modern Hero, in hopes of advancing women's rights and making strides towards a more equal world.
Modern Hero celebrates women who are defying the odds and shattering glass ceilings, both in their careers and in the world. These women are astronauts, educators, politicians, media personalities, and everyone in between, proving that role models come in all shapes and sizes. The series takes an interactive approach by having the audience AND the women featured nominate their Modern Heroes, who are then interviewed by millennial journalist, Julia Fisher Farbman. The goal of the series is to inspire a new wave of powerful young women to dream big and not let gender norms hold them back from success.
