Middle-schooler Marika is caught between two worlds. She and her friend Beth are passionate about women’s rights, and they plan to join a national rally to support the cause. But it’s 1970, and the equal rights movement has a lot of resistance—including from Marika’s parents. Marika wishes they were as supportive of equal rights as Beth’s parents, but Marika’s parents seem content with how things are. As the day of the Women’s Strike for Equality approaches, will Marika convince her parents to support her beliefs?
