The Daily Show’s Desi Lydic will explore the how and why of international women and gender equality in education, economics, health and politics, comparing it with US efforts. 

To do so, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah presents Desi Lydic: Abroad on Monday, May 13 at 11:00 PM ET/PT, marking her first one-hour special. The full special will be available to stream in its entirety on cc.com, the Comedy Central App, on-demand, and download-to-own platforms on Tuesday, May 14.
