NEW YORK, March 8, 2019 - In her first one-hour special, The Daily Show's Desi Lydic is setting out on a global expedition - exploring how and why the U.S. has fallen so far behind much of the world when it comes to women and education, economics, health and politics.

Desi Lydic: Abroad follows Lydic, a "journalist" and Woman-American, as she travels the world to learn about the policies, cultural shifts, and badass women that have catapulted other countries ahead of the United States which ranks #49 (out of 144 countries*) when it comes to gender equality. But can Lydic successfully use the lessons she learns in Iceland (#1), Namibia (#13) and Spain (#24) to help turn The Best Country in the World into The Best Country in the World for Women?
