Daughters of the Sexual Revolution: The Untold Story of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders

Daughters of the Sexual Revolution: The Untold Story of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders

DAUGHTERS OF THE SEXUAL REVOLUTION is the never-before-told story of Suzanne Mitchell, the fiercely-loyal den mother of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. Seen by many as regressive and exploitative, this diverse sisterhood of small-town “girls next door” became a controversial pop culture phenomenon at the height of the Sexual Revolution, changing the game of football -- and America -- forever.
