Many have heard the song “Nine to Five” by Dolly Parton or seen the 1980s film of the same name starring Parton, Lily Tomlin, and Jane Fonda. Yet few know that these two icons of popular culture were based on a social movement that started in Boston in the early 1970s. Oscar winners Julia Reichert and Steve Bognar’s illuminating documentary tells this little-known story that addresses still-relevant issues such as sexual harassment, pay equity, and the importance of protest.
