Miss going to the movies? So do we, but we’ve come up with the next best thing. The Higgins Labor Program has selected four great films showcasing the work and activism of four female protagonists fighting for social justice from different eras of American history.

How does it work?

Step 1: Watch the film on your own time. You can access the film online.


Step 2: RSVP for the Higgins Labor Film Club Zoom discussion. You’ll then receive a calendar invite with the Zoom info.


Step 3: Join us on a Sunday afternoon for casual conversation about the movie with Notre Dame faculty expert Emily Remus, Assistant Professor of History

About the film The Devil and Miss Jones

The Devil and Miss Jones stars Jean Arthur as Mary Jones, a department store worker, and Charles Coburn as John P. Merrick, a wealthy tycoon. When Merrick learns that his employees are planning to unionize the store, he takes on the guise of a department store worker to catch the activists undetected. Once he enters their lives, Merrick begins to have a change of heart.
