The film shares the stories of these women as they settle into careers during segregation. Each woman's accomplishments defeat the "status quo" during the Civil Rights Era. Having to deal not only with barriers based on race, Jackson, Vaughn, and Johnson dealt with gender barriers, as well. The movie was inspiring and made you appreciate their commitment to being African American and women fighters within the workplace.

I plan to read the book by Margot Lee Shetterly soon. I hate seeing a movie before I read the book. Anyway, I am hoping that the accuracy of the book is directly reflected in the film. I have my fingers crossed. Have you seen the movie? What did you think? Let's talk.
