Plot

The series follows a group of young female researchers at “News of the Week” (modeled after Newsweek) in the revolutionary times of 1969. Women in the newsroom are relegated to low-level positions. Many researchers are more talented and better educated than their male counterparts (the reporters), and do writing that the reporters incorporate directly into their stories, yet are paid less. The women have a sense that they're paid a lot less, and during the series it emerges just how much lower their pay is. But also at issue is the fact that their writing is not recognized: on the rare occasions when a female researcher's writing is openly accepted (such as when a male reporter quit just before a deadline), the story is nonetheless published under the man's name only.
