“Women of Steel” Film Screening and Discussion

Wednesday, October 20, 12 – 1:30pm
Virtual - Link will be emailed

Join the Partnership for Worker Education for this virtual film event to hear working women in Australia tell the powerful story of their fourteen-year long Wollongong Jobs for Women Campaign, a fight for jobs and equality at one of the country's most powerful companies. Their struggle plays out against a background of societal changes: from the emergence of the women’s movement and anti-discrimination legislation, to the shifting roles of women in the home, and the rising activism of a largely migrant workforce. Reviewers of this award-winning film have called it "A document that sits at the intersection of multiple injustices." (The Reel Bits) and "A story of perseverance and comradeship told with emotion and humour." This event is part of the Office of Equity and Inclusion’s Watch.Learn.Grow. film series. All are welcome.
