Mrs. America Episode 6 Spoilers: What to Expect?
As mentioned earlier, ‘Mrs. America’ episode 6 is titled ‘Jill.’ The title refers to Jill Ruckelshaus, a feminist activist, and a politician. She was referred to as “the Gloria Steinem of the Republican Party.” She was an influential force in the Nixon administration.
The blurb for the sixth episode reads: “With a pro-ERA Republican in the White House, Phyllis Schlafly protests her own party, which puts her in conflict with Republican feminist leader, Jill Ruckelshaus.”
Hence, viewers will finally get to see Elizabeth Banks as she plays Ruckelshaus. As the blurb mentions, the sixth episode will see how Schlafly’s opposition led to discord in the Republican Party as Ruckelshaus was a notable member of the party. Historically, this led to the strengthening of the Democratic Party, eventually causing Bill Clinton to be successfully elected as President in 1992. Of course, that will mostly not be seen on the show.
According to this interview, the episode should contain an integral scene where Schalfy and Ruckelshaus are seen sitting in a bar. Apparently, this scene will signify how Schlafly could have easily been on the “other side.”
