Discussion of the Documentary "9to5: The Story of a Movement"
March is Women's History Month. To celebrate one aspect of women's history, we will discuss the film 9to5: The Story of a Movement with one of the founders of this movement, former Takoma Park resident Ellen Cassedy. 9to5 documents a movement of female office workers seeking better pay, greater opportunity, and an end to sexual harassment. This movement became the inspiration of the comedy with a statement, Nine to Five, featuring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Dolly Parton.
You can watch the documentary online for free, through March 3 at: https://www.pbs.org/independentlens/videos/9to5-the-story-of-a-movement/. The film is about 90 minutes long.
