Is Mrs. America appropriate for children to watch? where to watch it?


MRS. AMERICA is set in the politically charged 1970s, when U.S. feminists were fighting for the passage of the Equal Rights Act, while their opposition was personified in conservative author and politico Phyllis Schlafly (Cate Blanchett). With the aid of her lawyer husband John Fred Schlafly (John Slattery), Phyllis Schlafly was instrumental in gutting congressional support for the ERA and launching a pro-family, anti-abortion, and anti-feminism movement in the Republican party, along the way brushing up against such vintage luminaries as Betty Friedan (Tracey Ullman), Gloria Steinem (Rose Byrne), Bella Azbug (Margo Martindale), and Shirley Chisholm (Udo Azuba) in her fight.
