"I got to find a job I can do for thirty years in this place." After working her way up from the assembly line, Dorothy Glinton became one of the first women to hold a management position at the Ford Motor Assembly Plant. She talks to her son, Sonari Glinton, about enduring sexism in the workplace, advocating for herself, and working to get more women into management positions.
