Emmy nomination for Monica Dogra’s international show

Mumbai, July 18 (IANS) Singer-actress Monica Dogra’s international docu-series “Woman With Gloria Steinem” — based on gender-related violence — has been nominated in the Outstanding Documentary or Non Fiction Series category at the upcoming 68th Emmy Awards.

“I can’t believe that ‘Woman…’ has been nominated for best non-fiction series! But at the same time, I feel like the series as a whole well deserved it,” Monica said in a statement.

“Thanks to Gloria Steinem and the entire production team, we are bringing very important women’s issues to light through the power of mainstream media. But an Emmy! This is one of the most prestigious honours. I feel lucky and blessed,” she added.

Steinem is the executive producer and host of the series, which is nominated alongside “American Masters”, “Chef’s Table”, “Making A Murderer” and “The Seventies” in the category.
