Working 9 to 5: A Women’s Movement, a Labor Union, and the Iconic Movie
This week on The Shmooze, Ellen Cassedy, author of Working 9 to 5: A Women’s Movement, a Labor Union, and the Iconic Movie, newly published by Chicago Review Press with a foreword by Jane Fonda. Ellen was a founder of the 9 to 5 movement in the early 1970s. In conversation we talk about how the Yiddish-speaking women activists of a hundred years ago inspired the women of the 9 to 5 movement. And we learn about Ellen’s work as a Yiddish translator and an alum of the Yiddish Book Center’s Translation Fellowship.
