Fifty years ago central Salford was a poverty-stricken slum of small terraced houses; today it is a vast council estate where people still live in relative poverty. How have the lives of the women there changed over half a century - and is the change one for the better? Through personal reminiscences, illustrated with rare archive footage, women from Salford and Preston produce a disturbing examination of their changing role and of the society in which they live.
