Here’s the synopsis for the show: “In 1969, while a cultural revolution with a soundtrack to match swept through the free world, there was still one place that refused to change with the times: newsrooms. ‘Good Girls Revolt’ follows a group of young female researchers, Jane Hollander (Anna Camp), Patti Robinson (Genevieve Angelson) and Cindy Reston (Erin Darke) at ‘News of the Week,’ who simply ask to be treated fairly. Their revolutionary request, led by lawyer Eleanor Holmes Norton (Joy Bryant), will spark convulsive changes and upend marriages, careers, sex lives, love lives, and friendships. The pilot is inspired by the landmark sexual discrimination cases chronicled in Lynn Povich’s book, ‘The Good Girls Revolt.'”
