TBS & TNT Announce International Women's Day Programming

To celebrate International Women's Day on March 8, TNT and TBS are implementing the YES SHE DID campaign.

This International Women's Day, TNT and TBS will celebrate women's achievements and raise awareness against bias. Women will be given the spotlight -- both earnestly and comedically -- through a multi-platform day-long activation utilizing a curated programming lineup as the anchor. Men are hired in disproportionate numbers to women in our business and to encourage change we have to speak up, be courageous and make sure everyone knows that SHE did that, YES SHE DID.

From Phoebe, Monica, and Rachel always being there for each other to the iconic heroine of Wonder Woman, Gracie kicking ass and taking names in Miss Congeniality...the bravery of Tris in the Divergent series to the triumph of Effie in Dreamgirls and Georgia living life to the fullest in Last Holiday, TBS and TNT are proudly celebrating International Women's Day with a programming lineup that salutes strong, empowered female characters and all of their accomplishments. #YesSheDid
