      Audience Member TV MOVIE. Average. This film is not particularly well made but it highlights the shocking degree to which women were discriminated against in the work place. Based on a PBS documentary called "Women of Wilmar". CBS 1/16/1984 Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member This must be based on a true story because how could you dream up such a corny plot: women scorn because they want more pay. hello? that is nothing to write home about. What ever happened to quitting in disgust and finding a better job? Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member A movie about 8 women who get together and fight for equal rights at their bank job. It's ok for a tv movie. Too bad they lost. They stood up for themselves and fought for what they believe in-I give them credit for that.
