Wellesley alumna highlighted in new Amazon series
Amazon’s new show, Good Girls Revolt, depicts the lives of women in the field of journalism throughout the sixties and seventies fighting against gender discrimination in the workplace. The character of Nora Ephron ‘62, portrayed by actress Grace Gummer, serves as a leader for women in the series when she confronts her editor for not giving her credit for rewriting a news story. Although the character of Ephron is credited as a Wellesley Alumna when first introduced, not all information in the series is historically accurate. The series includes Ephron in the group of women present for the historic 1970 lawsuit filed against Newsweek for gender discrimination, but in 1970 Ephron had already left her job at Newsweek to work at The New York Post.
