Storyline

Dolores Huerta bucks 1950s gender conventions by starting the country's first farm worker's union with fellow organizer Cesar Chavez. What starts out as a struggle for racial and labor justice, soon becomes a fight for gender equality within the same union she is eventually forced to leave. As she wrestles with raising 11 children, three marriages, and is nearly beaten to death by a San Francisco tactical police squad, Dolores emerges with a vision that connects her new found feminism with racial and class justice.

Excellent documentary
6 April 2018 | by sfdphdSee all my reviews

Dolores Huerta co-founded the United Farmworkers with Cesar Chavez. You probably have heard of Chavez but may not know of Huerta. She really did as much work or more than Chavez and did not get enough credit for her contributions. She deserves this documentary about her life. I learned so much more about her than I already knew. Her family's sacrifices are explored as well as her accomplishments and activism that went beyond the Farmworkers Union when they failed to elect her as President after Chavez died.
