Monument to the Unknown Woman Worker

Great Victoria Street
Belfast, BT2 7AD
+44 28 90385200

Mo to Su from 12:00 AM to 12:00 AM

The Monument to the Unknown Woman Worker outside the Europa Buscentre is a testament to all women workers both paid and unpaid. Various utensils attached to the two women represent their activities and include the shopping basket and the cash register. It is apt that the women appear strong and unshakable, battling on against low wages or no wages at all. Belfast owes its growth to the masses of female workers who built the largest and most famous linen industry in the world. Not to forget other women in factories, shops, and offices who struggled to support their families during the high unemployment caused by the Troubles. Pause for a moment to admire the heroism of these two women, and who they represent.
