A woman’s place is…everywhere.

Gender inequality in America is alive and well. According to a report by the World Economic Forum, the U.S. ranks 49th out of 144 countries on gender equality. In her first one-hour special Desi Lydic: Abroad, the namesake host is packing her bags to see how other countries fare when it comes to the pay gap, education, life expectancy, and political representation.

Lydic, a Daily Show correspondent, will learn about successful policies, cultural shifts, and the heroines behind them in countries like Iceland, Namibia, and Spain (which all rank higher than #49, by the way). In her travels, she will soak up the knowledge and bring it home stateside.
