The Baltimore Museum of Industry’s new exhibition 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. The exhibition is installed outside of the museum to allow for safe exploration during COVID-19 and is free of charge. www.thebmi.org
