The world was exactly like ours EXCEPT that women were the dominant gender. Women were the captains of industry and men were household workers, secretaries, and waiters trying to attract attention with their sexuality. To add some additional twists to that twist, there were characters into dominance/submission, a woman who had been a man (played by Linda Gray), and (of course) women CEOs having affairs with their secretaries.
It's chauvinistic and it's funny! It's Norman Lear's late-night soap comedy.

Norman Lear's 1976-1977 comedy television series "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman," transitioned into "Forever Fernwood" which concluded production in early 1977. Comedian and actress Dody Goodman, at age 62 (b.10/28/1914-d.06/22/2008, deceased at 93), who was cast in a featured role on "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman," was cast in "All That Glitters" after Lear's syndicated comedy "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman" had been shut down in early 1977. Because of actress Eileen Brennan's success using a prop "alive - hen chicken" in her earliest scenes in the "Glitters" establishing scenario, director Herb Kenwith wanted Dody Goodman to have a cat in her kitchen set. A crew member brought his caged docile female Abyssinian pet cat "Sister" onto the stage's kitchen set. During video taping of Dody's segment, the Abyssinian, instead of eating her bowl of treats, paced the kitchen counter, following Dody back and forth on the set's kitchen counter, meowing with every step. After the segment was finished, Dody remarked, "I've been upstaged by children, but never an Abyssinian cat!". "Sister's" first and only screen and meowing song fest ended her show-biz career.
