For today’s Choice Cuts I will be sharing one of my favorite movies.
Made in Dagenham tells the story of female workers fighting for equal pay at the Ford Dagenham car plant.
Rita O’Grady, played by Sally Hawkins, is the leader of this band of workers. The workers strike when their employers decide that they do not deserve the title of semi-skilled and the wages that go along with it.
It is an eye opening film about sexism and fighting for what is right.
I love this movie for many reasons.
As a woman, I am glad that I have the opportunity to receive an education, to work full-time, to vote, and to choose whether I want to get married and to whom.
These are not privileges we have always been allowed.
We learn about the suffragist movement but many don’t realize how recent of a change it was.
If it wasn’t for those women standing up and saying enough is enough, well, we would be living in a very different world today.
This is an amazing movie with a thought provoking subject and a wonderful cast.
I cannot recommend this movie enough.
If you get a chance, you should definitely watch it.
What is your favorite movie?
I would love to hear about it in the comment section!
