Suffragettes – Thursday, 5th July – 7pm for 7:30pm
Little did the women who started on their journey to campaign for the right of women to vote know that their actions would lead them into the history books. The 2015 historical drama set in London follows the path from peaceful protest and the many barriers they faced along the way, to the women becoming law breakers (and famously, window breakers, in Oxford Street).
The film’s characters centre around working class women including Maud Watts (Carey Mulligan) and shopkeeper Edith Ellyn (Helena Bonham Carter), and founder Emmeline Pankhurst (Meryl Streep). In celebration of 100 years since women got the vote this film is a must-see!
