The Suffragette movement was one of the most powerful movements in the history of mankind. Women fighting for their rights – a right to vote, a right to have control of their bodies, a rightful say in the upbringing of their children, a right to dignity – to live on an equal footing with men and contribute to the society where they live.
With a new movie directed by BAFTA Award winner Sarah Gavron and written by Emmy Award winner Abi Morgan, a new movie Suffragette has a riveting impact on anybody who’s watched it. With a beautiful and powerful cast of Acadey Award nominees Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter, Golden Globe Award nominee Brendan Gleeson, Academy Award winner Meryl Streep, this movie is surely to open up our points of view and shed a light on understanding the Suffragette movement more, and truly be thankful that it had happened.
Suffragette opens in Los Angeles and New York today, with a subsequent roll out to the other movie markets.
Go see it. Allow yourself be immersed in something your current life is based upon.
The Suffragette movement will be forever remembered in the History of mankind as one of the greatest things ever happened in the liberation of a woman as a social and equal partner of a man.
