Beautifully drawn and especially evolving characters, authentic atmosphere, a strong story line in addition to smaller everyday stories - all this is "Good Girls Revolt". We learn more and more about the people and the time at the end of the 60s and early 70s. The characters clearly show the development. All the actors are outstanding - I could not find a weak cast.

Even though the main plot is women's revolution in the direction of equality (especially in the New York editorial staff of the magazine "News of the Week"), one can, fortunately, discover much more. It is about many questions that still move us today, such as: interest in political and social developments and problems, importance of the news, work or home as fulfillment, work ethos, solidarity or even sexual liberation. All this is shown by different characters - "Good Girls Revolt" does not offer black-and-white and is not a series exclusively for women! The exciting thing about it is that we can always compare our present society image with the presented one, find differences, but also similarities.

The comparison to the series "Mad Men", which I also loved, lies close to the comparable time, but is nevertheless distant: The atmospherics, the inner conflict, sadness, despair and helplessness of the Don Draper stood in the foreground, was rather fascinating timeless, less explanatory and concrete in time. "Good Girls Revolt", on the other hand, distinguishes different, tangible, ground-level people, whose motivations, developments and actions are clearly more comprehensible, and works out the time reference vividly. I would have liked a few stronger and clearly drawn male figures, they remain somewhat pale in comparison to the women. But they, too, can not be typed as women's adversaries, and they are more likely to be seen in the sense of equality as thoughtless (interesting: the most impressed in the old roles is a woman, the publisher!). That Amazon Studios would not want to continue the series (it was read) is incredibly unfortunate and unintelligible!
