I love watching movies that are extraordinary story and based on true events. Confronting a male-dominated corporate machine and the oppressive attitudes of her times, Rita O’Grady (Golden Globe winner Sally Hawkins) leads her female co-workers in a struggle for rights, respect and equal pay that will change the “man’s world” forever.
In Dagenham, England 1968, at the town’s local Ford automobile plant, Rita is one of only 187 women in a workforce of 55,000 men. Facing overwhelming opposition in this “man’s world,” Rita rallies her female co-workers to fight for equal pay — a stand that defies the corporate status quo, threatens her marriage, and ultimately exacts a tragic toll. But with the support of the shop’s steward (Golden Globe winner Bob Hoskins) and the government’s Employment Secretary (two-time Golden Globe winner Miranda Richardson), the women become the sensation of the nation — and the catalyst for a profound turning point in time.
