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 »

Great show, Important Story - told with a little sexy soap thrown in
Loved GOOD GIRLS. If it wasn't because of the sexual discrimination the show sheds light on, I would want to jump right into this world. The setting is fun, familiar in some ways and yet so different from anything on "TV" right now. I love that this tells a story that hasn't gotten the attention is deserves in our current culture. The characters are all captivating and the performances are exceptional. (And it doesn't hurt that most of the cast isn't hard on the eye!). I can't wait to see how the gals and guys in this show evolve! It seems like they've woven in a nice amount of romance along with the historical stories, which I think will keep this entertaining and not preachy. I'm sold!
