Women of Steel

Sheffield City Council found that the “Women of Steel” statue was such a popular idea they raised even more than they needed to erect the statue so were able to strike commemorative medals to be presented to the surviving steel factory workers.

“Now in their late 80s, 90s and even 100s, we want Sheffield’s Women of Steel to be remembered and recognised for their efforts for years to come... a poignant memorial in the heart of Sheffield city centre, celebrating the Women of Steel.”

See the statue on the results page.
