Indie Lens Pop-Up: “9to5: The Story of a Movement”
Ends 11:59 p.m. Feb. 12
Before the hit song or film, 9to5 was an inspiring movement for equality that encapsulated the spirit of both the women’s and labor movements of the 1970s. When Dolly Parton sang “9 to 5,” she was doing more than just shining a light on the fate of American working women. Parton was singing the true story of a movement that started with 9to5, a group of Boston secretaries in the early ’70s. Their goals were simple — better pay, more advancement opportunities and an end to sexual harassment — but their unconventional approach attracted the press and shamed their bosses into change. Featuring interviews with 9to5’s founders, as well as actor and activist Jane Fonda, “9to5: The Story of a Movement” is the previously untold story of the fight that inspired a hit and changed the American workplace.
Socially Distant Community Snow Drawings
Ends Feb. 28
Anywhere in the Yampa Valley
The community is invited to share its snow drawings in the era of COVID-19 to keep the tradition alive. Create designs anywhere in the Yampa Valley’s snowy landscape by using snowshoes, then take a photo and email to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight Feb. 28. When submitting photos, include the name of the artists, where the drawings were created and the date.
