This is the rousing true story of women in Kirkland Lake, Ontario in the 1940’s who fought to improve conditions for their husbands working in the town’s mines. The women became the heart and soul of a union organizing drive that eventually changed their lives – and the world. The role women have played in Canada’s labour movement is largely untold. It is their efforts that have led to profound social and legislative changes, including the passage of important labour laws. The recent women’s marches seen across Canada and around the world in January of this year also make this story particularly timely and meaningful.
