Who says a woman’s place is in the kitchen ? What if she wants to work in a mine because it pays well and she has children to feed? The main character Josie Ames returns to her hometown in Northern Minnesota to find a job and has to find a job at a mine where almost all the local men, including her father, work. The women working in the mine are few and far between, and they all have to endure the harsh taunts and negative attitudes of the men. One can, of course, keep silent and tolerate, but then how can one defend one’s rights and dignity? “North Country” is a film based on true events.
