Good Girls Revolt coming soon… from Amazon
by Taylor Sperry
Last year, while Amazon was facing a lawsuit by their own delivery drivers and responding to the New York Times exposé of their “bruising” office culture, we wrote about the company’s release of the pilot episode of Good Girls Revolt. The eight-episode Amazon original series is based on Lynn Povich’s book about the very first female class action lawsuit, led by her and forty-five other women at Newsweek magazine, where the office culture was… also bad.
Writing for Flavorwire, Sarah Seltzer wondered if the show would continue to probe “the connection between individual ambition and collective action.” Now we can find out. Trailer below.
