*The 10-episode series “Good Girls Revolt,” based on the book The Good Girls Revolt: How the Women of Newsweek Sued their Bosses and Changed the Workplace by author Lynn Povich, becomes available today on Amazon Prime video.

Amazon’s adaptation follows a group of young female researchers in 1969 at “News of the Week,” as they embark on their revolutionary journey for equality in the workplace. One small step, becomes one big movement that sparks change and upends marriages, careers, sex lives, love lives, and friendships.
