When Dolly Parton sang “9 to 5,” she was doing more than just shining a light on the fate of American working women. Parton was singing the true story 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.

This program is presented in conjunction with the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum's current special exhibition, "Walk this Way: Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection of Historic Shoes."
