The campaign to gain jobs for women at the steelworks in manual jobs had two distinct parts, spanning the decade of the 1980s and continuing into the 1990s. Firstly, I became involved in the campaign in 1980 which embarrassed BHP into giving women work in 1981. I gained work with another 32 women in what was supposed to be a test group – the idea being that other women would follow once we gained jobs.
