It's More Than History: Sparrows Point's Women of Steel
In partnership with The Peale Center for Baltimore History & Culture
FREE Virtual Event
March 19, 12:00pm (EDT)
Hear from women who shattered the glass ceiling working at Bethlehem Steel’s Sparrows Point mill, the topic of a new outdoor exhibition at the Baltimore Museum of Industry, in this one-hour Zoom discussion moderated by Michelle Stefano, from the Library of Congress. Women of Steel highlights the stories of women who worked at Bethlehem Steel’s Sparrows Point mill in Baltimore from the 1930s until the mill closed in 2012. In many cases, women endured discrimination, sexual harassment, and childcare challenges. They made choices and sacrifices as they weighed risk and rewards in search of camaraderie, respect, and a livable wage.
The exhibition features photographs and first-person quotes from the women themselves. Presented by the Peale and Baltimore National Heritage Area, originally co-hosted by the BMI, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, and Historical Society of Baltimore County on March 7, 2021.
