NEW YORK — Gloria Steinem will host and produce a new television series on the Viceland network about the political impact of violence against women throughout the world. Viceland said Monday that the series, which will be called “Woman,” will premiere on May 10.

As executive producer, Steinem is leading a team of all-female journalists. Planned episodes will report on sexual violence in the Congo and within the U.S. military, and extremism in Pakistan.

Steinem is a social and political activist who became nationally recognized as a leader of the feminist movement in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

The network, a collaboration between Vice Media and the A&E networks, has been struggling to find an audience since launching two months ago.
