  • This stands tribute to women workers and inequality or work that still affects society. The sculpture is cast in bronze and features two probably working class women wearing symbols of stereotypical "women's work" as second skin in some cases and as items of clothing in others. Most of the symbols appear to domestic items such as colanders, a shopping basket and clothes pegs. Others are work place items such as typewriter and phone. An interesting way to visually make a statement about inequality in the workplace in the past and how it continues to this day. I can't fault the message and intent. The sculpture is to be quite frank ugly and misplaced in it's current location.
  • The Monument to the Unknown Woman Worker is a 1992 sculpture by Louise Walsh. The sculpture is located on the city's Great Victoria Street outside the Europa Bus centre. It is cast in bronze and features two working-class women with symbols of women's work embedded on the surfaces. I think sometimes it can be one of those things that can be unappreciated until you actually give it some thought to what it actually represents.
