North Country (2005)
Directed by Niki Caro

As part of September’s season of films for Scalarama we present a rare screening of this timely drama.
What Josey Aimes wants is a decent job so she can put food on the table and take care of her kids. What she gets is threatened, insulted, ogled, fondled, belittled, attacked and called filthy names. “Take it like a man,” her callous male boss says. Instead, she takes it like a human being – and fights back. Charlize Theron portrays Josey in North Country, the searing story of women who broke the gender barrier labouring in hazardous Minnesota iron mines… and broke legal ground with the nation’s first class-action sexual-harassment lawsuit. Frances McDormand, Sissy Spacek, Woody Harrelson and Sean Bean star with Theron in this emotionally explosive tale of taking on the odds to achieve what every range of abuse while working as a miner filed and won the landmark 1984 lawsuit..
