Synopsis

The somewhat exploitive title notwithstanding, this provocative film dramatizes the bitter, true-life struggle of "the Wilmar 8," eight women who, in 1977, began a two-year strike against the small Minnesota bank that employed them, charging sex discrimination in hiring and promotion. Lee Grant, who directed this film (that starred not only her daughter, Dinah Manoff, but also Jean Stapleton and "her" daughter, Pamela Putch), previously had directed an acclaimed documentary on the same subject for Public Television.
