An inspiring story
The Jobs for Women documentary film is the story of a diverse group of women who ignite a campaign that changes Australia forever.
What begins as a handful of women confronting the country's richest company, grows into a community-wide battle from the factory gates to the highest court in Australia.
The Jobs for Women Producers Group needs your help to turn this inspiring story into a documentary feature film. Our 2015 crowdfunding campaign funded the making of 'The Women Who Were Never There' and contributed towards script development for a dramatic feature film based on the Jobs for Women 1980-94 campaign. In late 2016 the Producers Group realized a dramatic feature film budget was not within our grasp and decided to turn the available funds into an achievable documentary feature budget and it has been all systems go since then!

Friends of the JFW film
Some of the original Jobs For Women campaigners, who battled for their right to work at the BHP steelworks along with supporters of the film, have set up the "Friends of the Jobs For Women film", with the aim of assisting the Producers Group with historic details.
The film team have completed interviewing all of these participants who collectively have painted a picture of this inspiring, passionate, humorous and truly unique campaign.
