DescriptionFOR LOVE OR MONEY is an exhilarating, superbly crafted feature length film. It tells the story of women's working lives throughout Australia's history. The film chronicles the extraordinary cycles of women's gains and losses as they are moved in and out of the workforce according to the demands of the time. It reveals how women's unpaid and voluntary work keeps an entire system running smoothly, in peacetime and in war. Drawing on archive material from 1906 up to 1983, FOR LOVE OR MONEY is also a film about revolt. It shows how women have fought and organised for equality and wage justice for over a century.
