Women’s struggle for equal pay still goes on today but here’s a film about where it all began. Don’t worry fellas, it’s not an hour and a half of bloke bashing – it actually looks pretty funny.
Made In Dagenham stars Sally Hawkins as a Ford Motors factory worker who starts a fight to get her female co-workers the same pay as their male counterparts. Floor manager Bob Hoskins and prominent labour politician Barbara Castle (Miranda Richardson) are backing them all the way but will the big bosses cave to the ladies’ demands?
Jamie Winstone, Rosamund Pike, Daniel Mays, Richard Schiff and Geraldine James also star. You can catch Made In Dagenham in cinemas from Frtiday 1st October 2010.
