Women of Steel – Michelle Rawlins in conversation with Nancy Fielder
Sat, 24 October 3:00pm - 4:00pm
True stories of love and loss during WWII from the Sheffield women who kept the foundry fires burning. When war broke out the young women of Sheffield became the backbone of the city’s steel industry. When the men returned from the front in 1945, many of these women found themselves discarded, but decades later, a grassroots campaign spearheaded by the elderly Women of Steel finally brought their remarkable story to light.
