‘Good Girls Revolt’ Cast, Producers on Sexual Harassment: “It’s All Over the Place”

“I’m from New York City from probably the most liberal background possible and it doesn’t take working at Fox news to have this. You don’t have to be in the this obviously more conservative, male-driven place,” said series star Genevieve Angelson. “It’s all over the place.”

Castmember Erin Darke went on to add that the biggest progression since the 1960s and ’70s when the show takes place is that now there’s a language for it. “Now women can stand up and say, ‘I was sexually harassed by my boss,’ and people know what that is and innately know the horror,” said the actress. “[Back then,] you knew that you felt violated or you knew that you felt belittled, and you didn’t even know how to communicate that to another women, much less men.”

‘Good Girls Revolt’ Cast at the TCA – Deadline Recap

Premiering on October 28, the 1969 newsroom-set Good Girls Revolt was inspired by the sexual discrimination cases chronicled in Lynn Povich’s book The Good Girls Revolt: How the Women Of Newsweek Sued Their Bosses and Changed the Workplace. Povich was one of the female staffers at Newsweek who, in 1970, accused it of discriminating in hiring and promotion.

In figuring out her role, Angelson said, “you can’t be a feminist before feminism,” which relieved her of the “burden” of her character being “a poster girl for this issue.”
