Made in Dagenham


In 1968 Britain, female union workers at a Ford plant in the city of Dagenham begin a lengthy fight for what they believe is right: equal pay for women and men. Led by Rita O’Grady, the group never stops in their efforts to pursue justice and fairness.

Made in Dagenham played in the 2010 Heartland Film Festival in the Truly Moving Picture Award Winners Sidebar.

• Think about what Rita had to go through publicly and at home. Would you have done the same thing, with the same
consequences Rita faced?
