The 1970s were a time of change; everyone agreed. One major change was the creation of edgier television shows.

The producers of television decided to adapt to the modern world. In the past, TV programs mainly featured proper and mild-mannered wives and mothers but in the 70’s all that changed. Sexy, provocative women graced the screens, and they were anything but dowdy.

This list contains some of the hottest American actresses that reshaped the 1970s.
