In early December, Amazon Video announced that it would not be renewing its new series Good Girls Revolt for a second season. The show, inspired by veteran journalist Lynn Povich’s book, told the story of the landmark sex discrimination lawsuit she and 45 other women filed against Newsweek in 1970. Good Girls Revolt captures the cultural awakening of that time period and centers on a group of young women who, despite doing work similar to that of their male coworkers, are paid less and are relegated to the title “researchers,” while their male colleagues are “reporters,” getting all the credit and bylines. The first season chronicles the women organizing to sue their employer, “News of the Week,” to be treated fairly. The show received a lot of positive buzz, a 4.5 star rating from over 18,000 viewers, and was selected by Newsweek as one of the best of 2016, but that wasn’t enough for Amazon, apparently. Just five weeks after it premiered, Amazon Video cancelled it.

Amazon’s abrupt cancellation of the critically acclaimed series “Good Girls Revolt” has struck a nerve with feminists and fans in the wake of recent real-world events.
On the surface, the series tells the story of women who demand the same opportunities as their male colleagues at the fictitious magazine News of the Week — a story inspired by real events that transpired at Newsweek in 1970. On a deeper level, it tells a dozen smaller stories of women confronting daily injustices in their own way.
Season one of Good Girls Revolt was available to stream exclusively through Amazon Video. The show was well received among critics, who applauded Amazon for highlighting these issues at a time when many women feel marginalized by political dialogue. It also performed well with viewers, according to a third-party report from Symphony Data obtained by GeekWire.
