Based on the true story, Good Girls Revolt follows the lives of women working in fictional "News of the Week" newsroom (based on Newsweek magazine) as "researchers" under a group of male reporters. The story focuses on the lead up to their battle for equal rights in the workplace, notably their right to be reporters.
The real Eleanor Holmes Norton went on to become a US Congresswoman and is still one today. Now, 46 years after the lawsuit against Newsweek for equal rights, the United States is voting on our first woman for President. See more »

My wife and I watched the whole show in 3 evenings. Each episode was better than the next. Great acting, great music, great characters, great story line. In the vain of Mad Men but with twenty somethings in 1969. The show felt like a natural extension of Mad Men and would be a natural progression into the topics of the 1970's. We were loving each of the three main characters and Could not wait until season two...but Amazon cancelled it after two months??? I was only aware of the show after a friend mentioned how good it was. I had not seen a single ad for it anywhere ( unlike Goliath which had ads everywhere). I mean how could this be a failure after two months of being out and no promotion? Stunned and turned off by this decision.
