Intersections Film Series: “9to5”
April 6, 2021 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm EDT
In the 1970s, a group of Boston women started a movement to demand pay equity, an end to sexual harassment, and a breaking of the glass ceiling. Five decades later, the work of the movement remains far from finished, but the real advances many women workers have achieved started right there in Boston. With their trademark incisiveness and care, Oscar-winning documentary filmmakers Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar train their lens on telling this forgotten story, revitalizing the conversation about women workers in struggle everywhere.
Screening will be followed by a post-film discussion with the Oscar-winning filmmakers; Kim Cook, a leader of the Seattle 9to5 chapter; and Mary Bellman, director of Penn State’s LABOR School.
This is a free event and open to all.
