Good Girls Revolt Review

Good Girls Revolt Review
Three of my most favorite things, in no particular order, are TV, feminism and the period of drastic cultural change and fantastic fashion that occurred between the mid 60s and late 70s. So to say Good Girls Revolt is within my wheelhouse is a drastic understatement. It literally is my wheelhouse. Good Girls Revolt, Amazon’s... Read more »

And that proved problematic. The Night Of opened by introducing us to Naz (Riz Ahmed), a young, smart... Read more »
