<b>&quot;A must-read for any activist or reader in search for a piece of inspiration.&quot;</b> —Liz Shuler, president, AFL-CIO<br /><br /><strong><em>9 to 5</em> wasn’t just a comic film—it was a movement built by Ellen Cassedy and her friends.</strong><br /><br />Ten office workers in Boston started out sitting in a circle and sharing the problems they encountered on the job. In a few short years, they had built a nationwide movement that united people of diverse races, classes, and ages.<br /><br />They took on the corporate titans. They leafleted and filed lawsuits and started a woman-led union. They won millions of dollars in back pay and helped make sexual harassment and pregnancy discrimination illegal.<br /><br />The women office workers who rose up to win rights and respect on the job transformed workplaces throughout America. And along the way came Dolly Parton’s toe-tapping song and a hit movie inspired by their work.<br /><br /><strong><em>Working 9 to 5</em></strong><strong> is a lively, informative, firsthand account </strong><strong>packed with practical organizing lore that will embolden anyone striving for fair treatment.</strong>
