Mrs. America with Kris Bowers


Composer Kris Bowers discusses his work on Hulu’s Mrs. America alongside music supervisor Mary Ramos and the show’s creator, Dahvi Waller. The conversation is moderated by Billboard’s Melinda Newman.

Mrs. America tells the story of the movement to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), and the unexpected backlash led by a conservative woman named Phyllis Schlafly, aka “the sweetheart of the silent majority.” Through the eyes of the women of the era – both Schlafly and second-wave feminists Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, Shirley Chisholm, Bella Abzug, and Jill Ruckelshaus – the series explores how one of the toughest battlegrounds in the culture wars of the 1970s helped give rise to the Moral Majority and forever shifted the political landscape.
