Full Summary: Georgia Tech's School of Literature, Media, and Communication and Women's Resource Center invite you to a screening of the new Amazon series Good Girls Revolt.
  RSVP at  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScUsvznHvoy-uxvLo4jHNOOyjS2fTbPPFMNFugomVULJwcE9g/viewform?c=0&w=1   The one-hour screening will be followed by a panel discussion that will include Georgia Tech faculty Carol Colatrella and Karen Head, current students Kendall Rankin and Raksha Muthukumar, and Sene Sorrow, Product Management - Digital /Mobile Technologies (independent contractor - Turner), and Georgia Tech alumna. These panelists will be joined by Lynda Obst, one of the executive producers of the series. Lynda is a film and television producer who has worked at almost every major studio and produced more than twenty films and television shows. Her credits include films such as Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Contact, Hope Floats, One Fine Day, and Sleepless in Seattle. She also wrote the best-selling book, Hello He Lied: And Other Truths from the Hollywood Trenches, and recently released her second book, Sleepless in Hollywood: Tales from the New Abnormal in the Movie Business. Amazon's description of the series:  Good Girls Revolt’s main characters are a group of young female researchers -- Jane Hollander (Anna Camp), Patti Robinson (Genevieve Angelson), and Cindy Reston (Erin Darke) -- who recognize they’re being treated unfairly in their jobs at “News of the Week.”  As they start to ask for the equality they deserve, their actions bring on unexpected consequences. The pilot episode is inspired by the first female class action lawsuit, which took place in 1970 when 46 women charged Newsweek with discrimination. Lynn Povich was one of the ringleaders and chronicled the case in her book The Good Girls Revolt. The series’ pilot also features characters inspired by the book that featured the “real” Nora Ephron and Eleanor Holmes Norton.
