ABSTRACT
Minnesota-bred Josey Aimes returns home with her two children in 1989 after escaping her abusive husband, taking a job with an iron mine after she is shunned by her community on account of her perceived promiscuity and other job offers dry up. She is almost immediately made a target of unwelcome sexual advances alongside her female co-workers by male mine employees, ultimately pursuing a lawsuit that would result in the first successful sexual harassment judgement in American history.
