Mrs America


Sundays from 19th April at 8.30pm Channel 210

The true-story series recounts the movement to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment and the unexpected backlash led by Phyllis Schlafly, the beauty queen-turned-conservative crusader being played by two-time Oscar winner Cate Blanchett. Through the eyes of the women of that era, from Schlafly to second-wave feminists Gloria Steinem (Rose Byrne), Betty Friedan, Shirley Chisholm, Bella Abzug and Jill Ruckelshaus, the series explores how one of the toughest battlegrounds in the culture wars of the 1970s helped give rise to the Moral Majority and forever shift the political landscape.
