About the Film

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 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.

9to5: The Story of a Movement, by Academy Award-winning filmmakers Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar, will also air at 10pm CT, Sunday, Feb. 7 on NET and premieres on the PBS Video App and PBS.org, Monday Feb. 1 at 9pm. CT.
