The struggle of power is an eternal one, doomed to destroy whatever forces seek to attain it. Everyone is struggling and demanding for their voices to be heard. The world yearns for balance but yet it is rattled with unrest and the war for equality has been raging on longer than was ever necessary. The equality amongst sexes has always been a controversial topic and has led to many heated debates and it has even caused pure rage-filled animosity in some people. The conversation is never easy because each side has its own belief which they will go to the ends of the Earth to follow through them.
The patriarchal society has been at war with women and men demanding equal rights for both sexes. It has constantly been putting down the women treating them as second-class citizens and sometimes much worse. It is a shocking testament to see how far someone will go and what kind of acts they will perform to have the people think that they are right.
Mrs. America takes this war and displays the sides at war and the characters at play fighting to either take down the Equal Rights Amendment or get it passed through Congress. There have always been women supporting against the Equal Rights Movement and shocking as it is, they had many followers in women. Some in an effort to gain political power demonized the movement against those demanding the rights. They actively victimized the women who were housewives stating that the movement was against what they stood for.
Who is the cast of Mrs. America?
The show being a miniseries was the way the showrunners were able to get their studded cast with Cate Blanchett as Phyllis Schafly. Rose Byrne is another popular actress who plays the role of Gloria Steinem. We also see Sarah Paulson in the miniseries as Alice Macray. The star-studded cast are only admittedly able to work with a miniseries because it allows them a relatively more free schedule afterward.
