Recent Graduate Steps into the Workforce: Lauren Whitinger

Hi, my name is Lauren Amber Whitinger. I am a graduating student at the Modern College of Design. I have had a passion for video and filmmaking since I can remember. I was lucky enough to recieve a scholarship to attend college because of a short film I made, awarding me the 2016 Governor’s Art Exhibition Award.

I am so thankful for the opportunity to be a part of FilmDayton! I’m excited to meet other aspiring filmmakers and gain experience in a professional setting with like-minded individuals. I am eager to have the chance to work on production sets.

Dayton Premiere of 9to5 – The Story of a Movement Thurs, 10/22 at Dixie Drive -In

In the early 1970s, a group of secretaries in Boston decided that they had suffered in silence long enough. They started fighting back, creating a movement to force changes in their workplaces. This movement became national, and is a largely forgotten story of U.S. twentieth century history. It encapsulates a unique intersection of the women’s movement with the labor movement. The awareness these secretaries brought to bear on women’s work reverberates even today. Clericals were the low-wage workers of their era. America now confronts the growing reality of deep income inequality.
