Watch Joy Bryant Play Eleanor Holmes Norton in Amazon’s ‘Good Girls Revolt’ Series Trailer

Joy Bryant stars in Amazon's "Good Girls Revolt"

Joy Bryant, best known as Jasmine Trussell in NBC’s Parenthood, makes her return to the small screen in Amazon’s newsroom drama Good Girls Revolt (which starts Friday, October 28) and we should all be watching.

Inspired by Lynn Povich’s book chronicling the real landmark gender discrimination case 46 women brought against Newsweek magazine in 1970, the show follows a fictional group of young female researchers who hit career roadblocks in the male-dominated world of journalism during the rise of feminism. 

Bryant plays Eleanor Holmes Norton, the young American Civil Liberties Union lawyer who represents the women in a lawsuit brought against the magazine for gender discrimination. Bryant’s character is based on the real-life lawyer who brought suit against Newsweek and won. The lawsuit sparked the national conversation about gender equality in the workplace.
