Synopsis: When the local iron mine began hiring women in 1975, Lois Jenson, a single mother on welfare, didn't think twice about accepting the grueling but well-paid job. What she hadn't considered was that she was entering a male-dominated society that fiercely resisted the inclusion of women, a prejudice born out in the brutal harassment of every female miner. Relentlessly threatened with pornographic graffiti, denigrating language, stalking, and physical assaults, the women largely kept quiet for fear of losing their jobs, until Lois, devastated by the abuse, found the courage to file a complaint in 1984. From Jenson's first day on the job, through three intensely humiliating trials, to the emotional day of the settlement, this is the thrilling story of how one woman pioneered and won the first sexual harassment class action suit in the United States.
