2) “9 to 5: Story of a Movement”–Netflix–documentary–1 hour & 29 minutes–women are still fighting for equal pay and rights in the business world with so much more to do–that is true of any group looking for equality whether it be gender, race, one’s sexuality, etc.,–THIS SHOWS ONE SUCH STRUGGLE AND A GROUP WHO STARTED IT AND AFTER 40 YEARS ARE STILL FIGHTING
