This statue of two women in Europe Buscentre is a tribute to all women from Belfast, paid and unpaid. Belfast had in its development much to owe to hard-working women who brought the world famous linen industry to fruition. But in honor to the many other women who worked hard during the difficult period of unemployment as a result of "The Troubles" ( the 30 year conflict between Protestants and Catholics), to maintain their families, the statue was erected. The monument is a sign of gratitude to all the women who never gave up, no matter how difficult it was sometimes.
You can see here how they, for instance, took over office works to keep things going, while the men were in prison. The addition of the bandages is not original and must be a joke of someone.
