The APM documentary "No Place for a Woman" tells a Minnesota story, but it became well-known nationwide.
It's about the women who worked in the mines in northern Minnesota, and what they faced on and off the job.
They eventually filed a sexual harassment suit against Eveleth Taconite on Minnesota's Iron Range.
It was the first successful sexual harassment class action lawsuit in the nation.
The story of the women working in the mines became a 2005 Hollywood movie and earlier that year Minnesota Public Radio's Stephanie Hemphill and Catherine Winter produced this documentary about it.
