Good Girls Revolt was a strong show about women fighting for equal treatment in the workforce. Strong characters moved the storyline seamlessly and famous characters like Nora Ephron reminded us these issues still persist today. Good Girls was tragically not picked up by Amazon for a second season but fans have voiced their opinions, and we might see it back sooner than we think.
