Mrs. America

This nine-episode series tells the story of the second-wave feminists who tried to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) in the 1970s—and the anti-feminist women who were ultimately successful in stopping them. The ERA campaign hinged on the novel idea that equality among genders ought to be written into the United States Constitution, and after watching this limited series, it's striking how little American politics have changed in the last 50 years. Oh, and the acting! Cate Blanchett, Margo Martindale, Tracey Ullmann, Uzo Aduba, Rose Byrne, Sarah Paulson; all of them should be delivering acceptance speeches in September.
