“9 to 5: 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 women. Parton was singing the true story of a movement that started in the early 1970s with a group of Boston secretaries called “Boston 9to5.” 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.
Following the film, there will be a moderated panel discussion with cast and crew from the Phipps production of 9 to 5.
