All-female show to celebrate girl power.
EMMERDALE will air an all-female episode for International Women's Day next year.
The ITV show now has a female executive producer and two female producers - the first time a soap has had an entirely female team at the helm.
Executive producer Jane Hudson said: "We'll have an episode produced by a female, directed by a female, written by a female. The entire cast will be female and we will have almost an entire female crew.
"We'll be giving some of the men the traditional female roles, so we'll be bringing our kids in for them to look after.
"We're really excited to be recognising International Women's Day."
