But none of that can express the way I’m torn to shreds by the final scene.  It hits home in the large and small ways I’ve felt the tinge of missed opportunity because of my gender.  How much harder I have to work just to be taken seriously.  That although the show’s creator and DP are both women there is just one other woman on the camera and lighting technical team.

Asking politely yields no result so these women require that their employer comply with federal law: equal opportunity in the workplace.  That sounds like one action, but “Good Girls Revolt” deftly takes the viewer through the million pieces of which it’s actually made up.  And it somehow makes bravery in the face of a mountainous feat compelling, entertaining, and dare I say it – sexy.
