Good Girls Revolt is an American period drama streaming television series.
It only lasted 1 season. Too bad. I found it far more entertaining than Mad Men.
The series follows a group of young female researchers at News of the Week magazine in the revolutionary times of 1969. Women in the newsroom are relegated to low-level positions. Many researchers are more talented and better educated …
Based on true stories, News of the Week is Newsweek. In 1970, 46 women researchers, reporters and the magazine’s one woman writer staged a revolt. They complained to the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Finally, in 1972, Newsweek promised that by the end of 1974, one-third of the magazine’s writers would be women.
I like Chris Diamantopoulos as Finn. And Erin Darke as Cindy Reston.
Actually, all the cast is good.
Jim Belushi is cast against his usual character as pro-Vietnam war, Wick.
Grace Gummer (daughter of Meryl Streep) as Nora Ephron is a glimpse into the future. She went on to write Silkwood (1983), When Harry Met Sally… (1989), and Sleepless in Seattle (1993).
