9to5: The Story of a Movement Screening and Discussion
9to5: The Story of a Movement captures the real-life fight that inspired a hit and changed the American workplace.
When Dolly Parton sang “9 to 5,” she was doing more than just shining a light on the fate of American working women. Parton was singing the true story of a movement that started with 9to5, a group of Boston secretaries in the early 1970s. Their goals were simple—better pay, more advancement opportunities and an end to sexual harassment—but their unconventional approach attracted the press and shamed their bosses into change. Featuring interviews with 9to5’s founders, as well as actor and activist Jane Fonda, 9to5: The Story of a Movement is the previously untold story of the fight that inspired a hit and changed the American workplace.
We are pleased to partner with 9to5 Georgia for this screening, followed by a panel discussion with Georgia State Director Mica Whitfield, Senior Organizer (Albany) Amna Farooqi, and former Organizing Director Cindia Cameron.
