The series is a historical drama about the struggle for the American Constitution amendment.
The film revolves around the confrontation of two points of view that existed in the United States in the 70s of the twentieth century.
On the one side, there are feminists, including Gloria Steinem (Rose Byrne), Shirley Chisholm (Uzo Aduba), Jill Ruckelshaus (Elizabeth Banks) and others. They advocate the adoption of an equal rights amendment.
On the other side, there is a conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly (Cate Blanchett). She is incredibly smart and persuasive. She opposes abortion, advocates the preservation of family values and, of course, actively speaks out against this amendment to the Constitution. Mrs. Schlafly understands that she can occupy a high position in power in this game, but who can allow her doing this if she is a woman?
