Amazon has released the trailer for Good Girls Revolt — and we get a look at the rampant sexism in New York's media industry in 1969. The series is inspired Lynn Povich's notable book The Good Girls Revolt, which details a sexual discrimination case in the 1960s.

The enticing drama, starring Grace Gummer (as Nora Ephron), Genevieve Angelson (as Patti Robinson), and Anna Camp (as Jane Hollander), is about a group of young, determined female researchers who are beginning to reject the ridiculous sexist rules that keep them at the bottom of the ladder at the fictional News of the Week paper. They embark on a revolutionary lawsuit to demand more prominent roles, led by their lawyer Eleanor Holmes Norton (Joy Bryant), sparking anger from their male colleagues.

It looks like a sexy Newsroom, filled with romance, sex scenes, and yes— girls revolting against sexism. It will be released Friday, October 28th, and I already know my plans for that night are not going to happen. 

Check out the trailer below:
