Synopsis

Two classic 1980s comedies that share the theme of women fighting for respect in the workplace. In 'Working Girl' (1988), clever secretary Tess (Melanie Griffith) is constantly frustrated in her attempts to become an executive broker; even her new female boss (Sigourney Weaver) steals her ideas and takes the credit. When the tyrannical boss breaks her leg skiing, Tess is left in charge of the office and the canny working girl takes over her boss's portfolio, wardrobe and boyfriend with excellent results - until her vengeful boss returns. '9 to 5' (1980) is a comedy about three female office workers in a giant corporation who are subjected to the indignity of a chauvinist boss. They entertain wild fantasies of revenge and decide to 'get even' through a series of outrageous incidents.
