The exhibition "Women in the industrial world" presents the impact and importance of women in the process of industrialising Catalonia. The display describes the living and working conditions of women in the industrial society and their role in creating industrial labour and working class markets. The exhibition reveals the role of women in industrial society using various resources: texts, photos, videos, statistical data, brochures, etc.
The exhibition, promoted by the Museum Service of the Department of Culture, in partnership with the MNACTEC Territorial Network, will be travelling around the 26 museums of the MNACTEC Territorial Network, along with other museums and cultural facilities around Catalonia. The script and content of the exhibition were produced by Prof Martin Iturralde and Prof Lluis Virós, members of the TIG Employment, Institutions and Gender Research Group attached to the Department of Contemporary History of the University of Barcelona.
