This performance art group created work that humorously addressed the issue of women and work. In the late 1970s, they performed all over Los Angeles in restaurants, public sites, and the DooDah Parade in Pasadena. The Waitresses interviewed are: Anne Gauldin, Denise Yarfitz, Jerri Allyn, Leslie Belt.

This video was commissioned by Otis College of Art and Design for the exhibition "Doin' It in Public: Feminism and Art at the Woman's Building" (1973-1991) in the Ben Maltz Gallery, October 1 January 28, 2012 and is part of an ongoing series of oral histories about the Woman's Building partially funded by the Getty Foundation.

The exhibition is part of a "Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A.1945-1980," an unprecedented collaboration of more than fifty cultural institutions across Southern California, which are coming together to tell the story of the birth of the LA art scene. Initiated through grants from the Getty Foundation, Pacific Standard Time will take place for six months beginning October 2011.
