American Woman, an eight-part digital video series hosted by CNN Newsroom (2-4pm) anchor Brooke Baldwin, launched today featuring interviews with eight accomplished women who have shattered ceilings across their respective industries.

2017 was a defining year for the American woman. From the Women’s March on Washington to the #MeToo moment, a movement has begun. In this series, Baldwin explores the lives, careers, personal setbacks and all the hurdles these trailblazing women surmounted to accomplish their dreams and pave a path for the next generation, while also exploring her own journey in a personal op-ed.
