Anne Briggs is a woman who runs her own farm — a rare thing in the U.S. where men dominate agricultural work, especially in managing farms. But she's better known for her woodworking. Her unique work focused on preserving traditions has brought her a wide audience on social media and thrust her into the spotlight as a woman paving her own way forward.

Hosted by Noor Tagouri, "A Woman's Job" is a six-part original series focused on women who are paving their own way in industries dominated by men. New episodes are available each Wednesday morning anywhere you watch Newsy.

Original theme by Mike Shinoda.
