The Good Girls Revolt: How the Women of Newsweek Sued their Bosses and Changed the Workplace
In the 1960s, Lynn Povich worked at Newsweek — where she became part of a revolution. At that time, women were hired to deliver mail, clip newspapers, and, if they were lucky, became researchers or fact checkers. All of the writers and reporters were men.
Povich's new book, The Good Girls Revolt: How the Women of Newsweek Sued their Bosses and Changed the Workplace, tells the story of how the women sued their bosses and changed the workplace. Povich ended up becoming a Senior Editor.
