Just before women’s history month comes to an end, Lifetime will honor a number of iconic women with its Women Making History special. Vice President Kamala Harris and Oscar nominee Andra Day are among trailblazing women to be featured in the television event.
Set to premiere Tuesday, March 30 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, the one-hour Lifetime special will feature an exclusive and intimate interview with Harris as she reveals some of the women who helped shape her life. Women Making History explores the various ways women are taking the lead in fields from science and medicine to human rights and political action, breaking down glass ceilings. The special will also highlight Harris’ work with President Joe Biden to pass the American Rescue Plan.
