Synopsis

Sassy dramatisation of the 1968 strike by 187 female machinists at Ford’s Dagenham motor factory, an act of establishment-shaking defiance that led to the Equal Pay Act. Backed by sympathetic foreman Bob Hoskins, Sally ‘Happy-Go-Lucky’ Hawkins leads the walkout with fellow working girls Jaime Winstone and Geraldine James, while Miranda Richardson provides support from the top as formidable employment minister Barbara Castle. Calendar Girls director Nigel Cole assembles another first-rate cast and once again displays a crowd-pleasing eye for the ladies.
