Feel-good feminist flick

"We've got to demand pay that reflects the job you do, not whether you've got a dick or not."

Made in Dagenham is the true story of the 1968 strike at the Ford Dagenham car plant in England, where 850 female workers walked out in protest against sexual discrimination and the desire for equal pay. The walkout became instrumental in Britain's Equal Pay Act 1970, which prohibits unfair treatment between men and women in terms of pay and conditions of employment.

The film is currently playing at Calgary's Globe Cinema.
