High Voltage Women

Seattle City Light hired 10 women for the first time in the 1970's and fired them because of rampant sexism.  It ended in a 7 ½ year legal battle for reinstatement of the women workers. We go to the Melbourne launch of Ellie Belew's book High Voltage Women, published by Red Letter Press, which tells the story of these heroic women workers.
