GlobeDocs: A Woman’s Work: The NFL’s Cheerleader Problem

GLOBEDOCS FILM FESTIVAL

FILMMAKER IN PERSON!

Co-Presented by IFFBoston

Director: Yu Gu • Producers: Yu Gu, Elizabeth Ai • Year: 2019 • Length: 80 minutes

Football and feminism collide in A WOMAN’S WORK as former NFL cheerleaders file class-action lawsuits against their teams and the league alleging wage theft and illegal employment practices. After more than 50 years of pervasive silence, these brave women expose the gender inequality at the heart of America’s favorite pastime, while facing exile from their communities and the job they love. Filmmaker Yu Gu explores the reality that their fight is a microcosm of the battles women wage across all industries today.

Guest: Director Yu Gu
Moderator: Nora Princiotti, Boston Globe reporter
