Norma Rae + Clean In

Norma Rae + Clean In

October 17, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The first film in the WGS film series Organizing Women.

Norma Rae is the iconic film about a minimum-wage worker in a cotton mill that has taken too much of a toll on the health of her family for her to continue ignoring the poor working conditions. She becomes involved in the labor union.

The evening will begin with the short documentary, Clean In, about the hotel workers at the DoubleTree Inn in Cambridge confronting Sheryl Sandberg and Drew Faust and eventually winning a union with the support of undergrads.
