Made in Dagenham - This extraordinary story is based on true events. Dagenham, England 1968. At the town's local Ford automobile plant, Rita O’Grady (Golden G|obe® winner Sally Hawkins) is one of only 187 women in a workforce of 55,000 men. Facing overwhelming opposition in this ”man’s world,” Rita rallies her female co—workers to fight for equal pay — a stand that defies the corporate status quo, threatens her marriage, and ultimately exacts a tragic toll. But with the support ofthe shop's steward (Golden G|obe® winner Bob Hoskins) and the government's Employment Secretary (two-time Golden G|obe® winner Miranda Richardson), the women become the sensation ofthe nation — and the catalyst for a profound turning point in time.
