What do Megan Thee Stallion, Jane Goodall, Amy Schumer, and Gloria Steinem all have in common? Well, if you ask Hillary and Chelsea Clinton, they’ll tell you that all these women define what it is to be gutsy—which is why Secretary Clinton and Chelsea chose to feature them in Gutsythe mother-daughter duo’s new series on Apple TV+.

Gutsy is an eight-part documentary series that celebrates trailblazing women. The show was inspired by their 2019 bestseller The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience. Each episode is centered around a specific theme—like “Gutsy Women Have Rebel Hearts” and “Gutsy Women Are Forces of Nature”—and they weave together conversations with different women who are connected to the theme.

Some of the women they interview are famous—others are not. But regardless of whether they are household names, each woman is doing something to make the world a better place. So while they speak to Kim Kardashian about her work helping people who are wrongfully convicted and Glennon Doyle and Abby Wambach about being their authentic selves, Secretary Clinton and Chelsea also speak to women like Shannon Foley Martinez, a former white supremacist who now works to deprogram others.

In a conversation with Oprah Daily, Secretary Clinton and Chelsea opened up about what they learned from these women as they created the series. Secretary Clinton told us she was particularly struck by the honesty that women like Martinez and Dolores Huerta, the labor organizer who is also featured in the series, displayed.

“I think about Dolores Huerta, who was one of our great labor organizers,” Secretary Clinton said. “Looking around the table where we were sitting with all of her daughters–she had 11 children–the daughters were very honest about how hard it was to have a mother who took them to picket lines and protests, instead of playdates. It was so moving to me.” Watch Clinton’s complete response here.
