This was an incredibly informative, well written, and heart wrenching book. Its been a few years since I saw North Country but from what I remember, it absolutely pales in comparison to the book. The authors tell the story so well that I felt emotional several times while reading about the horrendous struggle the brave women at Eveleth Mines went through dealing with sexism at work and then dealing with retaliation & health problems after filing the lawsuit.

The lawsuit lasted 14 years. And that was after the women had been dealing with horrible working conditions for 10-15 years already. Their perseverance is incredible.Its sad that in the end, the women still didnt get what they had wanted in the first place - acknowledgment that the company was wrong for allowing sexist and damaging behavior to go on toward the women. No one at the company ever apologized. And at the onset, all the women wanted was the company to create a sexual harassment policy.

The company wouldnt and so the trial dragged on for years.A quote from the end of the book:Even if my check was for $5 million, I dont know if Id feel good about it, Lois said. Most of all, she realized she had wanted an apology from the company, because it would have made her feel vindicated in a way the court system did not. We never got a chance to set the record straight, Lois said. Echoed Marcy, We just wanted to be believed.But again, really excellently written. I learned so much from start to finish!
