Screening: Suffragette (opening night film)
Wed 10 February 2016, 19:30 – 22:00 GMT
Oxford Human Rights Festival opening night screening of Suffragette with an introduction by Director Sarah Gavron and discussion about the representation of women in film with Dr. Sumita Mukherjee of King's College, London and Dr. Katherine Badley of Oxford Women's Festival.
A drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early 20th Century feminist movement. These women were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. They were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, but rather working women who had seen peaceful protest that achieved nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality - their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. One such foot solider was Maud. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, it is also heart-breaking and inspirational.
