The director of North Country talks about sexual harassment.
Caro: Yeah, I read that story. I don't know that's it a watertight argument for North Country. How is North Country relevant today? It's relevant because this case was resolved only six years ago. And there's female suffering—human suffering—going on right now. People talk to me all the time about sexual harassment. This sort of behavior did not only happen in the past. And it's not in just the working class. It's in every industry. It's in the military. It's in politics.
