Elizabeth Zott is a woman of science in a time where the two were not used in the same sentence.
She had done everything in her power to achieve the title of scientist, but no one in the scientific world believed she was actually a scientist.
The male dominated field does nothing, but try to shove her back to the designated role of women at the time…until she meets fellow scientist Calvin Harris.
Their love is genuine and built of mutual respect for each other as scientists and people.
However, life takes another turn and Elizabeth is left as a single mother and the face of a hit cooking TV show.
Though she despises the role, she turns it into a revolutionary watch for women across the country. As she gains popularity, she is able to show more and more women that there is more to life than being a housewife.
She was a feminst in a world not ready for her mind, character, or ambition.
