The Good Girls Revolt: How the Women of Newsweek Sued their Bosses and Changed the Workplace by Lynn Povich


It was the 1960s––a time of economic growth and social strife. young ladies poured into the place of business, however the “assist sought after” commercials have been segregated via gender and the “Mad men” place of job culture was rife with sexual stereotyping and discrimination.

Lynn Povich was one of the most lucky ones, touchdown a task at Newsweek, well known for its state of the art protection of civil rights and the “Swinging Sixties.” Nora Ephron, Jane Bryant Quinn, Ellen Goodman, and Susan Brownmiller all began there as smartly. It was a most sensible-notch activity––for a woman––at an exciting place.

but it was a lifeless end. ladies researchers infrequently become journalists, rarely authors, and not editors. Any aspiring feminine journalist was advised, “if you wish to be a author, cross elsewhere.”

Others misplaced their way amidentity opportunities, pressures, discouragements, and hostilities they have beenn’t ready to navigate.
