An exhibition about the range of jobs done by women over the past 150 years, from forging iron chains to assembling fine electrical components. The show highlights the fact that, while most women have always worked, in paid jobs or in the home, their work has been unrecognised and undervalued, and details the campaigns for equal pay and fair working conditions led by pioneering activists and supported by trade unions. On display are documents, images, films and artefacts from London Metropolitan University's Special Collections, The Women's Library and TUC Library Collections. There are talks at 6.30pm on Nov 3, Dec 8, Jan 5, Feb 9 and Mar 1, and at noon on Nov 26, Jan 28, Feb 25 and Mar 31.
