Welcome to Indie Lens Pop-Up virtual screening of 9TO5: The Story of a Movement hosted by Milwaukee PBS and the John Michael Kohler Arts Center.

After the film we invite you to remain and take part in a community conversation.

Before the hit song or film, 9to5 was an inspiring demand for equality that encapsulated the spirit of both the women’s and labor movements of the 1970s.
