Rate this:
In the coldest reaches of northern Minnesota, a group of women endured a shocking degree of sexual harrassment-until one of them stepped forward and sued the company that had turned a blind eye to their pleas for help. Jenson vs. Eveleth Mines, the first sexual harrassment class action in America, permanently changed the legal landscape as well as the lives of the women who fought the battle. In 1975, Lois Jenson, a single mother on welfare, heard that the local iron mine was now hiring women. From her first day on the job, through three intensely humiliating trials, to the emotional day of the settlement, it would take Jenson twenty-five years and most of her physical and mental health to fight the battle with the mining company. But with the support of other women miners and her luck at finding perhaps the finest legal team for class action law, Jenson would eventually prevail. The roller-coaster ride that became Jenson vs. Eveleth shows us that Class Action is not just one woman's story, it's every woman's legacy.
