March 8th is International Women’s Day or Working Women’s Day, recognized by the United Nations (UN). This day commemorates the struggle of women for their participation in the workplace and, thus, for economic independence. It is also used to vindicate feminism and to denounce sexism.
The Museum of Badalona joins this celebration and, among other actions, publishes this gallery that includes several photographs from the collections of the Archive of Images of the Museum itself, in which women (especially in the field of the world of work) is the protagonist. The photos show how, although it seems that women has incorporated recently into the world of work, she has always been linked to it, especially since the beginning of industrialization, but also to field work.
