"I got a gun in my purse and I know how to use it." A line I use to this day!
Pull out your pussy-bow blouses and pour yourself a cup of ambition at our extravaganza celebrating the 1980 feminist blockbuster 9 to 5 starring Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin. The evening begins with an '80s-inspired happy hour, complete with a Dolly Parton tribute performance and costume contest, followed by an outdoor movie screening introduced by New York Times Gender Editor Jessica Bennett.
