No Women Included in Decision to End "Good Girls Revolt"

No Women Included in Decision to End "Good Girls  Revolt"

Amazon announced the cancelation of its critically acclaimed series "Good Girls Revolt" just five weeks after it premiered.

"Good Girls Revolt" sheds light on the realities of journalism in the times of the Vietnam War and Civil Rights movement, where women did all of the leg-work.

The 10-part series was named one of the best new shows of 2016 by Newsweek and since its cancelation the hashtag #SaveGoodGirlsRevolt was created by loyal viewers.

One viewer tweeted at the show's creator, Dana Calvo, and asked her how many women were included on the decision to pull the plug on the show. Calvo responded, "Ha. Yeah, none. Just Roy Price."

According to Women in the World, Price is the head of studios and global content at Amazon and is reportedly not a fan of the show.

There have been inquiries as to whether or not the show would have been canceled if women's input was included and Calvo said that having a men-only decision-making group has the capacity to misconstrue a cultural moment.
