American Radio Works: No Place for a Woman

Many great things have come out of Minnesota, and the fine radio documentary programs developed by American Radio Works fall squarely into that category, in no small part due to their fine investigative journalism and curiosity about the world. Their latest documentary explores the experience of women who came to work in the iron mines of northern Minnesota. The documentary is divided into three segments, and on this website visitors can listen to the entire program, if they so desire. The program begins by exploring the changing context of job opportunities for women in the 1970s, and continues on to tell the stories of women like Pat Kosmach, who was an activist in the Steelworkers union during this turbulent time. The site also contains a number of fine additional features, including a section that tells about the experience of women who were called to work in the region during World War II. The site is rounded out by several reflection pieces by Catherine Winter and Stephanie Hemphill, who were responsible for researching and creating this documentary.
