SYNOPSIS

A compelling history of women and work told through the archive of Australian feature films, documentary and written accounts. From first contact and the brutality of early settlers through to strikes for fair pay and working conditions, this is a history of Australian women little seen in history books. A fascinating insight into the daily experience of labour, social expectations for women in the workplace and home from the late 1700s to the 1980s.
