I really enjoyed this film.It does have swearing,sex and suicide in it,so I think it's only appropriate for kids aged 12 + . Made in Dagenham follows the story of a group of women who work in the Ford factory in the 1960s.Rita OGrady (Sally Hawkins) works in the factory,and hates the fact that she and her colleagues don't have equal pay to men.The Ford machinists go on a few,unsuccessful strikes,before they go on strike 'until women have the same pay as men'. There are mixed reactions from the public.Meanwhile,another woman,Lisa,campaigns to stop caning at her sons school.Her husband,the manager of the Dagenham Ford factory,laughs at her for studying at university.The Ford machinists fight on,until they get a meeting with someone in the government (I can't remember who,look at other reviews for details.). At the end of the movie,the women win...and get near-to-equal pay and a promise for equal pay.This movie is uplifting and inspiring-watch it!
