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 »

Incredible story, incredible casting, beautiful picture, IMPORTANT story
This is one of the best series I have ever seen. The stories it covers, the dominant of which being that of feminism, are as important today as the time of the story itself. The casting and performances are fantastic. It's perfectly executed and just a beauty to watch.
The lead female roles offer a range of characters which allow for some beautiful performances. It is also refreshing to see the balance of male and female partial nudity, rather than nudity being on the part of the female only.
The irony of an all-male board within a media company canceling a show about male dominance in the media industry. This is one of those shows whose importance should be all that we need to renew it.
Well done to all those involved in the creation of this series, keep it up.
