The show is scheduled to start streaming on Hulu on April 15th, 2020, and will run through May 27th, 2020.

What Is The Plot Of The Show?

Mrs America is a periodical Feminist drama set in America of the 1970s. It describes in detail the struggle for the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment for women in America; an amendment that was, in the end, a failure, not having enough support to be passed by the law.

Central to the plot of the show is the character of Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative woman who didn’t believe in ERA and did everything in her power to oppose its ratification. She represents a typical picture of an upper-class housewife in America in the series.

The show is a battle between Schlafly and the second-wave Feminists of America, who are bent on bringing into law equal rights for women.

The Cast Of The Show

Cate Blanchett stars the show as Phyllis Schlafly. At the same time, the actors that play the second wave Feminists are Rose Byrne as Gloria Steinem, Tracy Ullman as Betty Friedan, Uzo Aduba as Shirley Chisholm, Margo Martindale as Bella Abzug, and Elizabeth Banks as Jill Ruckelshaus.

Other major actors in the show include John Slattery as Fred Schlafly, husband of Phyllis,  Sarah Paulson as Alice.

How Is The Cast Of The Show Identical To Their Real-Life Counterparts?

The cast of the upcoming Feminist show on Hulu has been successful in perfectly imitating not only their real-life characters’ looks but also their thoughts and opinions. All six of the central characters of the show, Schlafly as well as all the five second-wave Feminists are alive and very impressionable.

They have written and co-written many books, carried out campaigns and participated in many social activities. That is why it has been relatively easy to understand them, read about them, communicate with them, and become them.

Catch the show on Hulu on April 15th.
