Marilyn Albert

Marilyn Albert is a retired RN, Richmond, California, representative of the Wellstone Democratic Renewal Club to Healthy California Now.


In 1973 Karen Nussbaum and some around 9 friends including Ellen Cassedy, Marilyn Albert and Penny Kurland, founded 9to5, an organization for women clerical workers, initially in Boston.

We put out the newsletter 9to5. Again, for about a year, and it was during this time that we were talking with each other, but it was a very popularly based newsletter. And in fact, the very first issue, the headline in the first article in the first issue is “Every Day” and then it goes into kind of what do we confront every day on the job and then we started getting letters in from women who felt the same way we did.[1]
