“Good Girls Revolt is a critically acclaimed, feminist series about the 1970 landmark class action gender discrimination case against Newsweek and it was canceled because one male CEO didn’t like the content,” writes Care2 petition author Kelsey B. “GGR is a beautiful, empowering and honest portrayal of the fight these women and many like them went through to demand the right to equal opportunities in the workplace. “
The Hollywood Reporter cites anonymous sources who say Amazon executive Roy Price “was not a fan of the series,” hence the cancellation.
Fans and the show’s stars have been tweeting to save the show under the hashtag #SaveGoodGirlsRevolt.
“I don’t know what to tell women, scared of their own president, who ask why you cancelled a hit feminist show 30 days in,” tweeted Actor Genevieve Angelson.
