Mrs. America premieres


The story of the fight for and against the Equal Rights Amendment: a nine-part series following real historical figures. It  brings many leaders of mid-century American feminism into one storyline.

It is the vision of American life, and the crackling ensemble of its famous heroines — including Gloria Steinem, Shirley Chisholm, Bella Abzug, Betty Friedan, and Jill Ruckelshaus.

The group strategizes about how to empower the newly founded National Women’s Political Caucus, lobby mostly male Democratic and Republican leaders to pass the Equal Rights Amendment, make abortion legal, and neutralize pushback from charismatic reactionaries like Phyllis Schlafl.
