Good Girls Revolt has been gestating at Amazon for a while now, but now we finally get to take a proper look at the testosterone-driven New York media world in 1969. The drama — which is based on Lynn Povich’s book The Good Girls Revolt — follows a a group of young, driven female researchers at the fictional News of the Week paper who demand equality in the workplace, much to the chagrin of their male colleagues. And, yup, they will indeed begin to revolt (gasp!) in order to get the treatment they deserve. Starring Grace Gummer (as Nora Ephron), Genevieve Angelson, and Anna Camp, the series will be released on Amazon on October 28. Peggy Olson has never been prouder.
