Monument to the Unknown Woman Worker.

The Monument to the Unknown Woman Worker is an sculpture by Louise Walsh in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

The sculpture is located on the city's Great Victoria Street, adjacent to the Europa Hotel. The Department of the Environment's original commission was to reflect the nearby Amelia Street’s history as a Red-light district. However Walsh disagreed with this, and changed the focus to women's rights issues of low-paid jobs and unpaid housework.

Walsh was born in County Cork, and received her MA in sculpture from the University of Ulster.[1]
