Interesting historical period piece

I really enjoyed all the episodes of this show, which explores the fight over the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment between conservative women and liberal women in the American 1970s. There are only a few times I can recall when characters smoke cigarettes and marijuana briefly. Characters do drink alcohol and have sex, but most of it is offscreen or alluded to, making the show pretty tasteful in my opinion. There's very little swearing and no violence that I can remember. I really enjoy how the show depicts women's point of view. The storytelling is interesting and complex.

Age 14 and up.

this show is amazing ! i think parents could let their 12 year old watch this show. The only reason why i would suggest 14 yeasr and older is because it is very political and it might be hard for children of a younger age to follow whats happening in the show. However, the show is very educational and it has an amazing cast. there is very little sexual activity, alcoholism, drug abuse, etc throughout there is the use of strong language, but not alot.
