 Join us for a live online screening and discussion of "9to5: The Story of a Movement," which premieres on Independent Lens on February 1, 2021.

When Dolly Parton sang "9 to 5," she was doing more than just shining a light on the professional fate of American women. Parton was singing the autobiographical tale 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 9to5s 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.

Running time: 86 minutes, followed by discussion.
