Mrs America will arrive on Australian screens this month, with Cate Blanchett set to play a truly controversial and divisive character. It’s based on real life events that led to the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1970s, which would change the lives of women across the USA from then on.
Mrs America Season 1 TV Preview
During the 1970s a battle line was drawn in the USA between staunch conservatives and liberals over many women’s rights, including marital rape and abortion. The heavily conservative view was led by Phyllis Schlafly (played by Blanchett), an anti-feminist, campaigner and devout Christian who believed women should know their place.
This intriguing series is not only a hard-hitting reminder of the divisions within America at the time, but also inspiration years later, as inequality continues to thwart cultures around the world.
Starring Uzo Aduba (Orange Is The New Black) and Elizabeth Banks (Modern Family) and Cate Blanchett (Stateless), every episode of Mrs America series is now available on demand in Australia and using the information in this guide you can find exactly how and where to watch it.

Must See TV for fans of Mrs America
Mrs America Season 1 consists of nine episodes and looks set to be a hit with audiences around the world and create some truly gripping storylines. Once you have caught up on the latest episodes, we have suggested a few series below that may also take your fancy until the next one arrives.
Lucky Flynn is a bit of a family outcast, but when he learns that his mother is ill he takes a trip across the Nullabor in his old trusty pick-up, with nothing but an old piano in the back. When he picks up Meg (Milly Alcock) she is cold and defensive, but after a while, they start to strike a close friendship and find they have more than a few things in common. Upright Season 1 is now available to stream on demand with Foxtel, or with Foxtel Now, which currently has a free 10 day trial.
Breeders (Foxtel / BINGE)
Paul and Ally always had the ideal relationship, loved up, perfect jobs, laughter… That was until the kids came along! Now Paul can’t control his rage every time his children make a sound, and his ambitions of becoming a full time writer have stuttered to a halt. And it’s not just the couple’s own relationship that is suffering, their own parents are also starting to question their techniques. Breeders season 1 is now available to stream on demand with Foxtel, or with Foxtel Now, which currently has a free 10 day trial.
High Maintenance (Foxtel / BINGE)
The great thing about High Maintenance is that it does away with the conventional restrictions you would associate with a modern series. We don’t know the name of the main protagonist, and each new episode has an entirely new set of characters. What’s more, episodes are short and punchy at only 30 minutes, meaning you’re always kept off your toes as a viewer. And the most important thing of all? It’s very funny and light hearted. High Maintenance Season 4 is now available to stream on demand with Foxtel, or with Foxtel Now, which currently has a free 10 day trial.
