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.
