The Film

A Woman’s Work is an hour-long documentary chronicling NFL cheerleaders fighting for fair wages. Lacy T. of the Oakland Raiders cheer squad ignited this fire, and similar lawsuits have spread across the country. Through the struggle of these women in the court of law and in their personal lives, this film explores women’s rights, employment inequality and the nuances of modern misogyny that affect working women today.
