Jobs in heavy industries like steel were once thought of as suitable for men only. By the middle of World War 2, that myth was shattered as 1,000s of women moved into jobs traditionally performed by men, including blast furnace tending, crane operation, welding and steel fabrication. In some cases,women filled the same jobs that their brothers or husbands had before they went off to war. On sight interviews with working women about their jobs are especially interesting. Women of Steel was produced in cooperation with Republic Steel and was shot on location.
