Dolly Parton once stated that if “9 to 5” was about “Women’s Liberation,” she “wouldn’t have been involved.”
Highlights of the article:
Dolly Parton stated in 1980 that 9 to 5 was not a political film.
She acknowledged the film’s social and political impact in 2019.
Despite their differences, Dolly Parton and Jane Fonda got along on set.
Dolly Parton made her acting debut in the film 9 to 5. Many thought it was a film with a message about misogyny in the workplace.
The “Jolene” singer, however, stated in a 1980 interview that she would not have agreed to make the film if she knew it was political.
Years later, the Queen of Country, in 2019, gave 9 to 5 a little more credit.
According to the artist, ‘9 to 5’ was not about ‘the struggle of secretaries.’
Parton was asked if 9 to 5 was “a message movie” when she was interviewed by Rolling Stone in 1980, the year the picture was released.
She said, “Not really.” “It’s about women, although there are men and women in the office,” says the author. “Actually, a lot of people believed it was simply going to be women’s lib,” the singer continued, but she “wouldn’t have been participating if [she]thought it was going to be a sermon of some sort.” Dolly Parton is a country music legend. As it was once said ‘I Was Astounded at How Little Talent There Is Among Hollywood Writers,’ she says. In the 1970s, women’s liberation was at its pinnacle, and Parton was regularly asked about her thoughts on the movement. She made it a point to keep a neutral demeanor.
She told Rolling Stone, “I’m not saying I’m not for everyone’s rights; I’m just sayin’ I didn’t want to get involved in a political thing.” “It’s just a hilarious show.” What it’s saying, I believe, is self-evident. It’s largely about this boss and these three ladies, not about bosses in general or secretaries’ plight.” Dolly Parton remarked in 2019 that “9 to 5” “done a lot of good” for women in the workplace. In a 2019 interview with Good Morning America co-anchor Robin Roberts for the ABC News program “Dolly Parton: Here She Comes Again!” Parton discussed the impact of the film 9 to 5.
“[That film] did a lot of good, but it didn’t do enough good,” she remarked, “because we’ll always have the same difficulties in the workplace with women and men.” “I continue to believe that women should be paid equally and treated with dignity. That’s something I’m all about.
