Made in Dagenham is an interesting film inspired by the true story of English women striking against Ford in 1968 in order to have equal pay. They were the first women that went on strike against Ford Motor Company. Their union hardly supported them --- yet they were the impetus to the Equal Pay Act of 1970 in Great Britain. Fascinating stuff! Plus the hairstyles, clothing, and accents will make you smile. It's definitely worth a watch!
