8 – 9th March 2021

The History of Consett Steelworks is proud to present a programme of talks highlighting the impact and input of women in the workforce, with particular relevance to the social and economic history of the north east.

We have five pre-recorded talks on a diverse range of topics delivered by our panel of excellent speakers:

As well as our recordings of the presentations, we will be adding film links and images to celebrate the day to this page. If you have any images of Consett’s women workers or stories that you’d like to share then please do get in touch.
