”As the first female welder at the Volvo factory in the 70’s, Edith stood up against misogyny and sexual harassment in her workplace. She threw out the porn, spoke out and brought about great changes.

But she had to fight for everything, even having her own hammer. I read about her in VK (a local newspaper) and I think of her often. Of how we have to keep fighting.”
