Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin, and Jane Fonda are all taking part in an upcoming documentary, Still Working 9 to 5, fighting for gender equality 40 years after the film first came out.
The stars of 9 to 5, the hit film which came out in 1980, have reunited to shine a light on the continuing gender pay gap four decades later. In an exclusive clip from Still Working 9 to 5, Dolly explains: ‘My lord, it’s 40 years now and it’s still important.
‘Being treated with respect in the workplace, equal pay for equal work, and all those things that we all want to do. ‘Anybody that’s working should be paid for what they do, it doesn’t matter.
I think it’s given us a really good opportunity to step up and do more and make more corrections and to just do more good things for women especially.’ Dolly, who played Doralee in the film, has always been an advocate for women’s rights, continually challenging the stereotype people may try and cast her as in her music, in tracks such as Dumb Blonde.
