Women’s Global Docu-Series from Lauren Zalaznick Debuts on Refinery29

Refinery29, a digital-media player focused on a millennial-female audience, is launching original series “A Woman’s Place: The Frontlines of Feminism,” executive produced by former NBCUniversal exec Lauren Zalaznick.

The eight-part docu-series profiles leaders and activists who are leading female-empowerment efforts in communities around the world, including the Philippines, Ecuador, Senegal, Brazil, Turkey, Egypt, Sweden and the U.S. “A Woman’s Place” was created with Kassidy Brown and Allison Rapson, co-founders of female-centric media firm We Are the XX. The series debuted Tuesday with subsequent episodes to be released weekly.

“I was inspired by Allison and Kassidy’s unwavering mission to champion women around the world, and I’m proud to help amplify the creators’ voice and those of the women profiled in ‘A Woman’s Place,’” Zalaznick said.

Zalaznick departed NBCU two years ago, after building Bravo into a leading cable net catering to a female audience with heavy diet of reality TV. She serves as a strategic adviser to Refinery29 and joined the board of Shazam Entertainment last year.

The first episode of “A Woman’s Place,” directed by Shannon Gibson, explores the evolving transgender culture war in the Philippines and follows Maki, a transgender woman who is fighting for her community to receive legal recognition and healthcare, among other basic rights.

New York-based Refinery29, which has more than 25 million unique monthly visitors for its fashion, beauty and lifestyle content, has stepped up its focus on video in the past year. Other original series include “Style Out There” and “Tehran Unveiled.”
