Throughout Melissa McCarthy's time in Hollywood, she hasn't let anyone define her genre-bending career. The critically acclaimed star has remained unapologetically herself, creating her own roles and never giving up on her dreams as an actress.
McCarthy's profound accomplishments and dedication to inspiring others are why SeeHer Story is celebrating the actress in this week's episode. (Plus, it happens to be her birthday!)
Katie Couric Media and PEOPLE partnered to create the second season of SeeHer Story, a weekly digital video series produced to celebrate various female trailblazers from the past 100 years to today.
The actress continues to break barriers, and take on new challenges in her career without letting anyone deter her.
“Every time someone tries to tell you what you can’t do — that is the first person to ignore," she said in a previous interview.
SeeHer Story will be a regular feature in PEOPLE’s print edition, the weekday morning newsletter Wake-Up Call with Katie Couric and on PeopleTV’s entertainment show, PEOPLE Now.
"SeeHer Story celebrates the important contributions of bold women from the past 100 years who have changed our country forever,” said Couric in a statement. “We hope recognizing them and telling their stories will not only give them their due but will also inspire the next generation of leaders.”
She added, “Together with Meredith and PEOPLE, I’m so excited to bring back a second season of stories of women whose names you may know — and put those whose achievements are not as well-known — front and center so we can celebrate them as well.”
