The Willmar 8

Portrayal of ordinary women who bond together to improve their lives
This film provides a very good portrait of eight ordinary midwestern middle class women, without much political, feminist, or labor consciousness, who go on strike against their small town bank employer to achieve equal status with the male employees. Lee Grant, in her directorial debut, deftly introduces the participants and lets them tell their own stories without heavy-handed commentary.
