A bilingual, 22-min short film produced for The Nation Magazine.

What does a feminism for the 99% look like? Ask the hotel housekeepers who unionized a DoubleTree hotel owned by Harvard. These women fought the first female president of Harvard to gain a union. They asked Sheryl Sandberg to “lean in” with them, to no effect. The class divide in feminism is dramatized in this short bilingual film about their struggle, directed by Rebecca Rojer, produced by The Nation magazine, and featuring music by Downtown Boys.
