The lives of the first women to mine coal in Canada are documented in this award-winning documentary of its time, filmed in the early 1980s. Situated in an open pit mine in the snowy mountains of British Columbia, these young women were breaking new ground, challenging discriminatory labour practices and the closed minds of their male coworkers. The women worked hard and fought for recognition and equity. They were young, spirited, and determined.
