Reported by The Courier – the news we share raises awareness of equality issues being reported in the media. 

From pitheads to offices and hospitals to the factory floor, the work of women in Fife in the 20th century is being celebrated this week.

The Women at Work project will share fascinating images online from local photography collections. ONFife Libraries will also be making reading recommendations, and the public are being invited to join in a simultaneous viewing of the documentary film Her Century: Scottish Women in Film on Thursday evening.

The film, which was premiered recently by the National Library of Scotland in partnership with Film Hub Scotland, is a curated collection of archive films that explore the major social changes Scottish women have faced in the past 100 years.

There will also be a post-film chat with ONFife local studies officer Sara Kelly.

Michelle Sweeney, ONFife’s director of creative development, said: “We’re delighted to be celebrating the working lives of women during the last century and it also gives us a great opportunity to share some of the terrific archive material that is such a rich resource for the people of Fife.”
