Sally Field is Norma Rae.

Sally Field (Lincoln) won an Academy Award for Best Actress  in the 1979 film drama Norma Rae.

Under the guidance of a New York unionizer (Ron Leibman, A Little Help) and with increasing courage and determination, Norma Rae organizes her fellow factory workers to fight for better conditions and wages.
