9to5: The Story of a Movement
Season 22 Episode 7 | 1h 24m 54s

When Dolly Parton sang “9 to 5,” she was singing about a real movement that started with a group of secretaries in the early 1970s. Their goals were simple—better pay, more advancement opportunities and an end to sexual harassment—but as seen in 9to5: The Story of a Movement, their fight that inspired a hit would change the American workplace forever.

There isn’t much the whole world seems to agree on, but I have yet to meet a person who doesn’t love Dolly Parton. She’s funny, glamorous, famous, and fabulous. Oh, and she sings too. For over 50 years, she’s been writing songs that can bring you to your feet or bring you to your knees.

And Dolly’s also been quietly changing the world. She’s given away over 150 million books worldwide to early readers around the world through her literacy program, Imagination Library. She helped fund COVID vaccine research, contributed to animal welfare, local disaster relief, and countless charities. This humble and self-proclaimed “dumb blonde” isn’t vocal about her political beliefs, but she doesn’t have to be; Dolly always says what she feels through her songs and the projects she takes on.
