When women entered the workforce in the 1960s, most of the available jobs were secretarial. Instead of being seen by their bosses as a vital part of the office, many secretaries were regarded as glorified servants for the men who did the “real work.”

Fed up with unfair treatment and discrimination, working women all over the United States banded together to demand respect and improved working conditions. Together, they formed 9to5, a working women’s advocacy organization (with big roots in Cleveland!). 9to5 was at the forefront of the women’s movement, tackling everything from equal pay to sexual harassment.

When Jane Fonda and Dolly Parton created the popular “9to5” song and movie, which was inspired by the organization, the movement took off in a way no one could have dreamed in the beginning. After decades of success, as society and technology shifted workplace culture, 9to5 eventually disbanded, but its impact lives on today.

An inspiring and enlightening documentary, 9to5: The Story of a Movement demonstrates the powerful changes that can happen when women come together and fight for their rights.

Following the film, participants will take part in a discussion and activity. Watch the trailer.


This program is part of the 2024 Cleveland Humanities Festival.
