Publisher's Summary

The work was hard and dirty. Men told them to go home. But they needed the money, and they were too proud to quit. In the 1970s and '80s, as women around the country began taking jobs once reserved for men, a few women started driving trucks and digging iron ore in northern Minnesota's enormous pit mines. The good pay gave them new independence. They bought trailer homes, left bad marriages, got off welfare. But some of the men working at the mines tried to drive them out. Women were harassed, threatened, and even assaulted. They didn't know the abuse was illegal; no one talked about sexual harassment back then. But new federal laws gave the women a way to fight back. A group of women at Eveleth Mines filed the first class action sexual harassment lawsuit in the country. Their story is the basis for a major Hollywood movie coming out this fall.

This new documentary from American RadioWorks tells the dramatic, moving story of the women who fought to prove themselves at the mines, and the women who still work there. Through dozens of interviews with men and women who worked in the pits and processed the ore, the documentary brings to life a moment in time when the workplace changed forever.
