Made in Dagenham

I've just seen the trailer for the film Made in Dagenham, which is about the 1968 strike for equal pay at the Ford Dagenham car plant by women working as sewing machinists.

It looks really good and it has both Happy Go Lucky's excellent Sally Hawkins and Richard Schiff of the West Wing in it. The film is due for release in October.

That's really great news! I'm doing a talk to my TU on socialist feminism during late 60s/70s and have included this strike has it had such an important impact on the early years of the feminist movement.
