Driving over 7,000 miles from Los Angeles to New York over the course of 30 days, this documentary spotlights 17 positive and powerful women leaders across a variety of lifestyles and industries. From flying above San Francisco with a female pilot, to sitting down with the creator of 'The Oprah Show,' to working in a lab with a cancer biologist, the empowerment gals get the chance to spend a day in each woman's shoes.
