    I was initially drawn to watching this limited series because the early 70s are a fascinating period to me (during which I was a child and have a spotty memory). I'm glad I did commit to the nine episodes, which are mostly 45 minutes to an hour long. First, the performances are amazing. I pretty much expect Cate Blanchett to be terrific in whatever she does, but the depth she brings to Schlafly is very moving. Rose Byrne disappears into Gloria Steinem, the underrated Tracey Ullman is perfect as irascible Betty Friedan, and the always wonderful Margo Martindale is a lot of fun as bellicose Bella Abzug. Second, the story weaves effectively between 6 or so main protagonists through several turbulent years yet it never feels like a "then this happened, then this happened" approach. The writing was smart and emotional. Truly a class A production. Where I felt it could have been better was a little more focus on Shirley Chisholm who seems a little short-changed (ironic, since under-representation vis a vis racism is a recurring issue). Her story is not only important as the first Black woman to run for President less than a decade after the repeal of Jim Crow laws, but clearly analogous to our current political times. Also, I came in expecting a Left Wing screed and while it does weigh more in that direction (Schlafly is seen at best as a tragic anti-hero), it did not come off as ham-fisted agitprop to me. The characters on the other side of the spectrum (most everyone) are also flawed; at times they are bitter, childish, indulgent, petty and surprise surprise even prejudiced. Another part of my enjoyment was the kitsch factor: the clothes, the music, a random reference to "Maude" (how could there not have been) and an amusing (but telling) comment by Friedan on how "Mary" never visits "Rhoda" in her apartment. Definitely recommend this to anyone who is interested in the the era and ERA - despite the dramatic liberties, that cast, and nostalgia for a very different time that feels very familiar still.
