"Never underestimate the power we women have to define our own destiny" -Emmeline Pankhurst.
In 1912, England, before women had a voice; they had to fight for their freedom.
Inspired by the true story of the ordinary women who inspired the world, Suffragette is a drama that tracks the story of the early feminist movement, women who were forced
underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal state. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality- their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives.
With an all-star cast, including Carey Mulligan, Meryl Streep, Helena Bonham Carter and Anne-Marie Duff, I cannot wait to see this film. Not only does it star my all time favourite well-spoken actress, Carey Mulligan, playing a working class cockney Londoner, the trailer looks absolutely phenomenal. It gives me goose-pimples every time I watch it. A truly inspirational story about the horrendous struggle our fore-mothers had to endure in order to fight for their dignity. This film appears to be both enriching and heartbreaking.
