This weekend is going to be quite eventful. Flying to New York to preview the movie Suffragette, and then follow with a high tea live conversation with some of the most prominent women in the movie-making industry:
• Writer Abi Morgan (The Iron Lady)
• Director Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane)
• Producers Faye Ward (Jane Eyre, The Other Boleyn Girl) and Alison Owen (Saving Mr. Banks, Temple Grandin)
The “high” society of these women is truly something to be excited about. What we are going to share and talk about is the movement that truly shook the world in the last century – The Suffragette Movement. Women who raised above being suppressed and always told what to do with their bodies, their lives, their talents and gifts. Women who sacrificed their personal happiness, so you and I could truly live our lives with much more freedoms. Yet remember how fragile this happiness equilibrium is in the society where a woman is still looked as far from being equal to a man.
SUFFRAGETTE debuts in New York and Los Angeles October 23, expanding across the country in the weeks that follow.
