Image from the film Norma Rae
Sally Field won an Oscar® for her spirited portrayal of the title character, based on real-life labor organizer Crystal Lee Sutton. A young mother, worn down by a hard, low-paying job in a southern textiles factory, fights to bring better working conditions through unionization despite the suspicions of coworkers and hostility of management. In 2011, Norma Rae was acknowledged by the Library of Congress for its cultural significance and was added to the National Film Registry. Contains brief profanity, violence, and sexual situations.
