ABC Radio National – Steely Women

In July 1980 Australian history was made when a group of blue collar women took on BHP. The women wanted to work alongside the men at the Port Kembla steel works. And so began the nation’s longest running anti-discrimination case. The protest was unprecedented. 40 years later, the triumphant women tell their story.

I produced this episode of ABC Radio National’s weekly history show and podcast, The History Listen.
