Women of Steel (1984)

19 Apr

28m

Producer: Mon Valley Media

Synopsis (Women Make Movies): For women who entered the nation’s steel mills in the 1970s, the mill was a ticket out of traditionally low-paying “women’s jobs” and in some cases, out of poverty. But any gains for women were short lived. WOMEN OF STEEL looks at a turning point in the history of American industry and the disastrous effects widesweeping layoffs and plant closings had on women and families, affirmative action plans, and the union movement. An important historical documentary which has an eerie relevance to women’s place in the American economy in the 1990s.
