A Woman’s Work: The NFL’s Cheerleader Problem shines a spotlight on the NFL and its practices around wage theft and illegal employment of cheerleaders. Director Yu Gu follows several former cheerleaders, sharing both their legal and personal struggles as they fight for minimum wage and end 50 years of inequality inflicted by the NFL.

The film takes us on a journey focusing on an historic class-action lawsuit that cheerleaders were finally able to bring against the NFL. The subjects of the film inspire each other to take on this seemingly insurmountable battle, and share a story that is more timely than ever. Their fight for wage and gender equality epitomizes many of the challenges faced by working women in all sectors today.
