Director Robynne Murphy joins us in conversation for a Q&A after the screening.  

Forty years ago, director Robynne Murphy, one of the leaders of Wollongong's Jobs for Women Campaign, took on Australia’s most powerful company – BHP. 

When the 1980s steel slump devastated the city’s economy, the women were forced into the courtroom.  Their struggle plays out against a background of societal changes: from anti-discrimination legislation, to the shifting roles of women in the home.  

Follow a group of determined women in their 14-year fight for their right to work in the Australian steel industry. 

‘Murphy’s film is a story of perseverance and comradeship told with emotion and humour’ - Filmink
