About the event

Hunter Workers presents fundraiser and Q&A screening of Women Of Steel, Wednesday 21st July 7pm at Hoyts Cinemas Greenhills. Proceeds going to Got Your Back Sista, a local charity that supports women and children after escaping from domestic violence.

Wollongong, 1980: Denied jobs at the steelworks – the city’s main employer – working class / migrant women refused to accept discrimination. They began a campaign for the right to work that lasted for fourteen years. Their battle against BHP, the country’s richest and most powerful company, took them from factory gate to the highest court in the land and changed the rules for women throughout Australia. Using rare archival footage and speaking directly to camera, these Women of Steel tell their own stories for the first time on film.
