The Ealing Central and Acton Labour Party present a special screening of SUFFRAGETTE in honour of the anniversary of women's right to vote in the UK.
In 1912 in London’s East End, Maud Watts is brought into the Women’s Social and Political Union, as they campaign for equality and the right to vote through peaceful protests and then civil disobedience. With their standing, freedom and lives at risk, they remain undeterred in their fight. This award-winning and celebrated film tells the many true stories of these early activists, and their lasting legacy and inspiration a century later.
MP for Ealing Central & Acton,DR RUPA HUQ and actor SAMUEL WEST (Howards End, Ven Helsing, Notting Hill, Darkest Hour) who played Benedict Haughton in the film, will be available for a Q&A after the film that will include another special guest or two. ;)
Let's celebrate... Everyone welcome!
