20 Iconic TV Shows Created by Kickass Women
In the entertainment industry, female filmmakers and showrunners are glaringly underrepresented, which is even more of a travesty when you consider the contributions they have made to the big and small screens.

In honour of International Women's Day, we're highlighting the most iconic TV series created by women.
