A Nelligen filmaker has won the History Council of NSW's 2020 Macquarie PHA Applied History Award for Women of Steel.
The film was praised by the History Council judges for its informative, gritty, evocative and powerful presentation of history.
Robynne Murphy directed the rousing story of the 1980-1994 campaign by Wollongong women for jobs in the BHP-AIS steel works. Robynne was a 30-year career steelworker whose jobs at the Port Kembla plant included welder, crane driver, and hot strip mill operator. The film is released in cinemas on November 19. Ms Murphy is also a member of the Nelligen RFS.
