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

The working women’s movement that inspired the lyrics of Dolly Parton's historic song started with a group of Boston secretaries in the early 1970s and spread across the nation. Their goals were simple—better pay, more advancement opportunities, and an end to sexual harassment—and their unconventional approach attracted the attention of the press and shamed their reluctant bosses into change.

After viewing the film, join panelists as they discuss the beginnings of the 9to5 movement, and where we are now. Discussion begins at approximately 8:30pm ET
