Thrown into Action - The Heosch - Women's Initiative

In the beginning of the 80s and the course of the steel crisis, dedicated women solidarized themselves with the Hoesch employees of an organization, irrespective of their origin, profession and political position. Fascinating photographs, selected documents and exhibits display how these women demonstrated for the preservation of jobs – even going on a hunger strike in front of the Westfalenhütte.
