Made in Dagenham

Working Chicks of the World Unite! And get yourselves down to the cinema. You’ve probably never heard of a woman named Rita O’Grady or the town of Dagenham, but if you are making a decent living as a woman, you owe her and her motley group of sisters a huge “thank you.” Made in Dagenham is a wonderful little film about a very important moment in women’s history. It is based on the true story of the ladies who sewed seat covers for Ford Motor Company in Dagenham, England in 1968, and fought to get equal pay for equal work. And yes, it is sort of a British Norma Rae, but it is much more fun.
