Feature Film: Women of Steel – Denied jobs at the steelworks, the city’s main employer, working class/migrant women refused discrimination. Their 14-year campaign for the right to work pitted them against BHP, the richest and most powerful company in Australia. In Women of Steel, they tell their personal stories – from the unemployment line to the factory gate to the High Court. It’s an exciting and often humorous story of the ups and downs of a group of seemingly ordinary women, determined to overcome a giant.

Director: Robynne Murphy
