All Work and Low Pay: The Story of Women and Work is the latest exhibition at The Women’s Library, London Metropolitan University, London E1 7NT. It opened on 28 October 2011 and will run until 4 April 2012. Entry is free of charge.

It explores the fact that most women have always worked, in paid jobs or in the home, but their work has consistently been unrecognised and undervalued. The exhibition shows the extraordinary range of jobs done by women over the past 150 years, from forging iron chains to assembling fine electrical components. It highlights the campaigns for equal pay and fair working conditions led by pioneering activists and supported by trade unions.

This blog will run throughout the exhibition. If you’d like to contribute, get in touch: sophie.scott@londonmet.ac.uk
