9to5’s Mission & Values
9to5’s mission is to build a movement for economic justice, by engaging directly affected women to improve working conditions.
- Winning family-friendly policies to help working people balance responsibilities at home and on the job.
- Ensuring workers receive fair pay and benefits.
- Protecting all workers against workplace discrimination and sexual harassment.
- Elevating women to be self- sufficient and able to support their families.
An economically just world where poverty and discrimination have been eliminated, the contributions of women are recognized and valued, and women and their families thrive.
Social Justice and Anti-Oppression Commitment
At 9to5 we acknowledge that our work for economic justice is one form of action in the larger struggle for social justice. We acknowledge that 9to5 members will never achieve full economic empowerment if our sisters of color or the LGBTQ community, or our sisters living with a disability or low incomes do not achieve full equality.
We are actively learning more about how we are directly affected by oppression and can act as allies to those who are oppressed. While 9to5’s mission is focused on economic justice, we know that true victory will only be found when all social justice efforts succeed.
