Synopsis

Acclaimed British drama portraying the 1968 strike at Ford's Dagenham car plant, where female workers walked out in protest against sexual discrimination and unequal pay. Like many local women, Rita O'Grady (Sally Hawkins) works at the Ford assembly plant stitching seat covers. Although it is intricate work, carried out in sweltering conditions, she is paid the same as an unskilled labourer. But as time passes the female workers come to question this inequality, and eventually take their plight all the way to the House of Commons with the support of political firebrand Barbara Castle (Miranda Richardson).
