In the eternal battle between the sexes, one side holds an overwhelming advantage: Armed with razor-sharp wit and wielding gossip as a weapon, victory can only go to The Women. Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford and Rosalind Russell enter the skirmish as Mary Haines, Crystal Allen and Sylvia Fowler--whose battlegrounds are the beauty parlor and fashion-show runway. The engagement begins when Mary's husband takes up with shop girl Crystal, and scandalmonger Sylvia gives Mary advice that quickly results in divorce--but that is only the opening salvo in this cracklingly sharp, classic comedy.
