Amazon's <i>Good Girls Revolt</i>: These Girls Want To Write? Good Lord! What Will They Want Next?
Huffington Post - 4 months
In contrast to Vietnam War or Civil Rights protestors, the 1960s fighters in the women's movement first had to convince some people there even was a problem. The clueless crowd in the new Amazon Prime series Good Girls Revolt, which drops Friday, includes the editors of a national news magazine. In the final moments of the '60s, December 1969, they can't imagine why the women on their staff are suddenly no longer content being anonymous researchers. These women want a chance to write bylined stories. Can you imagine? Based on a real-life legal action brought against Newsweek magazine and chronicled in Lynn Povich's book The Good Girls Revolt, the Amazon Prime series focuses on three women who do decide they want the same shot as the guys. These include career woman Jane Hollander (Anna Camp), free-spirited Patti Robinson (Genevieve Angelson), and the initially mousy Cindy Reston (Erin Drake) (above). They are all enthusiastic contributors to the magazine, w ...

‘Good Girls Revolt’ Is A Show About 1969 That Will Ring True For Women In 2016
Huffington Post - 4 months
Amazon show “Good Girls Revolt” focuses on the lives of a very particular group of New York women in the late 1960s. But the issues it zeroes in on are still painfully relevant to many American women. “Good Girls Revolt” is centered around a group of women who work as researchers (never writers or editors ― those jobs are reserved for their male colleagues) at the fictional News of the Week magazine. Eventually, they decide to file a lawsuit against their company for gender discrimination. The premise is a fascinating one, even more so because it’s based on a real landmark discrimination case filed against Newsweek magazine in 1970. The experience prompted Lynn Povich, one of the women behind the suit, to write the 2012 book The Good Girls Revolt. Actress Joy Bryant plays Eleanor Holmes Norton, the lawyer who represented the women ― and who went on to become a U.S. congresswoman. Bryant told The Huffington Post she was “so honored” to portray Norton, a game-changing presence in ...

Anna Camp Opens Up About Hollywood Sexual Harassment
Huffington Post - 4 months
Anna Camp understands firsthand the sexual harassment her fictional character Jane Hollander has to endure in the new Amazon series “Good Girls Revolt.”  On Monday, the 34-year-old actress sat down with People Magazine and her “Good Girls Revolt” co-stars to discuss the upcoming series, which is centered around a group of young female researchers fighting for workplace equality at fictional News of the Week Magazine in 1969. (The series is based on a true story about the young women that worked at Newsweek in 1970.)  Camp told People that her “Good Girls Revolt” character Jane repeatedly gets hit on by a co-worker ― one that she maintains an important professional relationship with. And, unfortunately, Camp said she’s had similar experiences working in the entertainment industry: I’m happily married now, but [I have had moments] on sets where I have been shooting a scene with someone, it’s going very well, but I can tell… “Oh God, I think he’s going to ask … Oh God, is he ...

'70s Newsroom Drama 'Good Girls Revolt' Premiering On Amazon
Huffington Post - 5 months
Once upon a time, white men ruled the newsroom. While traditional media still has a long way to go in reflecting actual diversity, the scene was much grimmer in the 1970s. Women who wanted to report on the news were relegated to lower-rung researcher positions, while their male counterparts were the ones to actually put the words together — and get the coveted bylines.  Amazon’s “Good Girls Revolt,” the pilot of which streamed on Amazon in late 2015, finally has a full season, and a trailer to go along with it. The story is inspired by the real-life women of Newsweek, who, along with her co-workers, sued their bosses for discrimination in hiring and promotion. Watch it above — there’s indignation, sex, typewriters, delicious period clothing, Joy Bryant, Anna Camp, Grace Gummer in a weird wig, and, of course, a quick hit of girl power.  Whether “Good Girls” will veer too far into the melodramatic remains to be seen; we’ll have to keep watching to see if it mak ...

'Good Girls Revolt' Is A Promising Portrait Of A Newsroom In Flux
Huffington Post - over 1 year
The workplace is a fertile ground for television. The forced interaction of dissimilar people, the built-in hierarchies, and the soul-deadening florescent lighting all make for a potent playground for screenwriters and showrunners. "The Office," in both its U.K. and U.S. iterations, captured the ennui -- and the secret heart -- of dreary middle management. "Party Down" gave us delightful slackers made to don bow ties in the name of making rent. "Mad Men" gave us, well, "Mad Men," and all its delectable period costuming and quiet drama. One new workplace-driven show picks up, in a sense, just as the aforementioned AMC drama leaves us with Don Draper and a bottle of Coke. The pilot episode of "Good Girls Revolt," an Amazon Prime original, follows the grind of a '70s-era newsroom. There, the celebrated -- and all male -- reporters get praise from the public and higher-ups, while the female "researchers" do the dirty work of journalism without ever seeing their bylines grace ...

Famous Women Get Real About Menstruation To Combat Period-Shaming
Huffington Post - over 1 year
With the help of a few celebrities, Thinx wants to end the stigma surrounding periods. Actresses Sophia Bush, Joy Bryant and Jackie Tohn kept it real while talking about menstruation during the opening of a mini documentary from Thinx, the period-proof underwear company that ran into obstacles when trying to get its ads approved for New York City's subways. Bush, in particular, touched on the way society discusses periods. "It's all so technical and creepy the way they talk to us about it, that the lining of the uterine walls is sloughing," she said. "That's ... gorgeous." Later, Tohn mentioned the shame that comes with menstruation. The actress and singer shared her disappointment that such a natural thing isn't talked about openly. "What's so sad about people being shamed for getting their periods and how the female body works is that none of us would be here if it weren't for how the female body works," she said. "So that that is sort of a shaming as opposed t ...
