Good Girls Revolt is a captivating Amazon Studios drama based on the real-life events of the 1970 gender discrimination lawsuit against Newsweek. Set in 1969, the show follows a group of young women working at the fictional news magazine publication News of the Week, who have dreams of being reporters, but instead are relegated to low-level research jobs and undervalued based solely on their gender.

The show stars Genevieve Angelson as lead character Patti, a secretary who dreams of being a writer and news reporter, and Anna Camp as Jane, a researcher who uncovers the unfair treatment and disparity in pay among their male counterparts. They are joined by their friend Cindy, played by Erin Darke, who is a researcher but has her own quirks that make her stand out. Together, the three women band together after learning that they are not going to be promoted, despite having worked for years and performed outstanding work.

As the women work to uncover and document the extensive discrimination they face from their male superiors, the show highlights the societal changes taking place during the late '60s and early '70s. It features strong, standout performances by the lead actresses, who expertly portray the emotions and turmoil that these women went through to fight for their rightful place in the newsroom.

Throughout the show, the women encounter obstacles from their male counterparts and must fight to be taken seriously and receive the same opportunities and wages as the men in the newsroom, despite their education and qualifications. As they relentlessly pursue their goals, they form a tight bond with each other and are supported by male co-workers who want to see equality become a reality.

In addition to the powerful storylines and performances, the show is also visually stunning with its retro set designs and groovy soundtrack, which transport viewers back to the time period in which it was set. The attention to detail and accuracy of the era's social and political climate are further complemented by an excellent script and complex character development.

Throughout its two-season run, Good Girls Revolt proves to be an empowering, impactful and engaging series, with the subject of gender discrimination at the forefront, and the fight for equality being presented in a timely and timeless way. Despite its cancellation after its second season, the show remains a stand-out triumph for its representation of strong women who push back against the status quo and pave the way for future generations.

In conclusion, Good Girls Revolt is an excellent show for anyone interested in real-life historical events, feminism, and the way that popular culture has the power to influence change. The show is a must-watch for fans of period dramas and anyone invested in the ongoing fight for gender equality. The performances, storyline, and direction all come together to create a powerful and thought-provoking experience. Everyone who watches this show should be inspired to fight for what they believe in and fight against oppression in all of its forms.
