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.

Join a national audience for a special Indie Lens Pop-Up interactive live chat and online screening of 9to5: The Story of a Movement, featuring remarks by:

  • Elizabeth H. Shuler, Secretary-Treasurer, AFL-CIO
