Next Episode of Good Girls Revolt is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
It was the 1960's - a time of economic boom and social strife. Young women poured into the workplace, but the "Help Wanted" ads were segregated by gender and the "Mad Men" office culture was rife with sexual stereotyping and discrimination. Lynn Povich was one of the lucky ones, landing a job at Newsweek, renowned for its cutting-edge coverage of civil rights and the "Swinging Sixties." Nora Ephron, Jane Bryant Quinn, Ellen Goodman, and Susan Brownmiller all started there as well. It was a top-notch job - for a girl - at an exciting place. But it was a dead end.Women researchers sometimes became reporters, rarely writers, and never editors. Any aspiring female journalist was told, "If you want to be a writer, go somewhere else." On March 16, 1970, the day Newsweek published a cover story on the fledgling feminist movement entitled "Women in Revolt," forty-six Newsweek women charged the magazine with discrimination in hiring and promotion. It was the first female class action lawsuit--the first by women journalists--and it inspired other women in the media to quickly follow suit. Lynn Povich was one of the ringleaders.
In 1969, while a cultural revolution swept through the free world, there was still one place that refused to change with the times: newsrooms. We meet a group of young female researchers at "News of the Week," and bear witness to the sexist attitudes and dismissive treatment of their male co-workers. Their fight against sex-discrimination begins here and now...
Jane helps Sam nail down a challenging interview, while Patti's aspirations cause a rift in her relationship with Doug. The girls attend a consciousness-raising meeting, where Cindy makes a discovery about herself.
When News of the Week's publisher comes to visit, Patti and Cindy are motivated to pursue equality in the workplace. Meanwhile, Cindy and Ned take their flirtationship up to a bold new level at work.
Patti and Doug butt heads while Cindy gains a new sexual confidence. Finn returns home from a trip with his wife to find that Wick has disobeyed orders.
Patti invites her coworkers to a wild New Year's Eve party that pushes them out of their comfort zone. Jane receives some bad news and makes a change, while Cindy visits Eleanor in Harlem.
Patti lets Doug take credit for her work on a national scoop, as she and Eleanor enlist a key player in the lawsuit. Finn hires an eccentric new editor. Jane and Sam work on a tough field assignment.
Patti's birthday party devolves into chaos and Jane feels excluded from the other girls. Finn and his new editor let loose on a boy's trip.
Jane asserts herself to the new editor but he presents her with a very unwelcome obstacle. Cindy reconsiders her marriage. Patti gets an opportunity to prove herself, but discovers she still has a lot to learn.
