“Good Girls Revolt,” a New TV Series Portrays the Lawsuit Brought by Eleanor Holmes Norton

This clip below from the Stephen Colbert Show made me feel really good and I hope it does the same for you. He is bringing a little advertisement to a new TV show, “Good Girls Revolt,” which tells the story of a civil rights suit brought by Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton against Newsweek for equal employment opportunities for women.

It is rare to hear the term, “civil rights,” applied to women. I’m glad someone remembers that we are included in the Civil Rights Act of 1964. A lot of people seem to forget this. Maybe this new TV series will remind us all.

Here’s the clip:
