12 Aug Movie Night with 9to5 LA: Suffragette
On Women’s Equality Day, we celebrate the struggle for women’s right to vote. Suffragette is a new drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement in England by 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 by injustice, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality – their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. Maud was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller. It is also heart-breaking and inspirational.
