Event Description

In 1969, while a cultural revolution was sweeping through the free world, newsrooms around the country remained stagnant. At the time, only men were hired as writers, while women were given support roles and research positions with no real opportunity for promotion. To that end, a group of 46 women joined together to file the first female class action suit for sex discrimination in 1970. The revolutionary act sparked a movement that encouraged women to sue some of the largest media organizations in the nation. Good Girls Revolt, a new Amazon Original Series exclusively on Prime Video, is based on this historical movement. The pilot is inspired by the landmark sexual discrimination cases chronicled in Lynn Povich's book, The Good Girls Revolt. Join Pop Culture Happy Hour host and Monkey See blogger, Linda Holmes for a screening of the pilot, along with Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, writer Lynn Povich and actresses Anna Camp, Erin Darke, Genevieve Angelson and Joy Bryant.
