Best Woman of Steel

Deborah Rudacille

Deborah Rudacille grew up in Dundalk, which was still a steel town at that point, just in time to watch the Sparrows Point millworks decline from one of the region’s primary economic forces to a skeleton crew outpost of a Russian iron company. And with the mill’s decline, so too went Dundalk and a half-century’s worth of gains in labor rights, also forged at the mill. Rudacille’s recent book Roots of Steel serves as a masterful document of the mill’s history and politics, and what it means for us now.
