More About the Show

Over the last half-century, America has seen one of the most sweeping social revolutions in its history, as women have asserted their rights to a full and fair share  of political power, economic opportunity, and personal autonomy.  It’s a revolution that has unfolded in public and private, on grand stages like the Supreme Court and Congress, and humbler ones like the boardroom and the bedroom. No individual, nor any aspect of American life, has not been changed.
