The timing of the upcoming British drama film Suffragette is not lost on us, with the very important topic of feminism more prominent in our minds than ever. How far have we actually come since the brave women of the suffrage movement fought so hard for women’s right?
We’ve come far, but we’re not there yet, which is sure to make the Sarah Gavron-directed film an even more poignant watch.
Written by Abi Morgan, Suffragette centres on early members of the British women’s suffrage movement in the late 19th and early 20th century. The film stars Academy Award winner Meryl Streep, Academy Award nominee Carey Mulligan, two-time Academy Award nominee Helena Bonham Carter and the terrific Ben Wishaw.
Suffragette will be given a limited release in October.
