Cinema has portrayed women working from the beginning, but the worker has taken the form of a male figure. Understanding the specific struggles and achievements of women in their fight for the re-signification of labour done by women has become more complex through images and representations that filmmakers, often women, have constructed throughout time. Looking at the selection for this year’s Healthy Workplaces Film Award, we discuss how women have been represented in film as workers, the fights and collective struggles, and how diversified portrayals can call for a broader discussion and understanding.
In partnership with the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work.
