Mrs. America Hulu TV Trailer

Mrs. America stars Cate Blanchett as conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly, who fought and successfully stopped the ratification of the controversial Equal Rights Amendment. While the series doesn't outright vilify Schlafly, it instead implies that she was herself a victim of sexism and was cast aside by her husband. Portraying her as subservient and cunning is exactly how conservative women are still depicted by those who oppose them today. It's rare that Hollywood ever produces a series that approaches each viewpoint without bias. Here again, the filmmakers have filtered a historical figure through a single political lens.
