9to5: The Story of A Movement Photos

Movie Info

In the early 1970s, a group of secretaries in Boston decided that they had suffered in silence long enough. They started fighting back, creating a movement to force changes in their workplaces. This movement became national, and is a largely forgotten story of U.S. twentieth century history. It encapsulates a unique intersection of the women's movement with the labor movement. The awareness these secretaries brought to bear on women's work reverberates even today. Clericals were the low-wage workers of their era. America now confronts the growing reality of deep income inequality. The stories and strategies of these bold, creative women resonates in contemporary America.

  • Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar engagingly look back into the '70s for the roots of the movement that inspired a Hollywood hit and the famous Dolly Parton song.

  • Veering from the well-assembled focus of its first half doesn't diminish the power of the group's story, but it does end a vital film on a weaker note.

    June 26, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • Energetic, informative and bracing.

  • The documentary 9to5: The Story of a Movement shines a deserving spotlight on the activists who fought for gender equality in the U.S. workforce, beginning in the early 1970s ... The documentary ... has a lively conversational tone.

  • While 9to5 tells a dutiful story about the start of the female office workers' labor movement and its curious popularization...the presentation is far less eye-opening than it could have been.

  • At its best, the film will be a long-overdue introduction for many to the women whose efforts improved the lives of all workers.
