SPEAK SOFTLY BUT CARRIES A BIG STICK

The Equal pay act in BRITAIN was passed over 40 years ago. The law came about over a Ford Dagenham car plant in 1968. The woman at this plant went on strike tired of being skilled workers and receiving less pay then the men. Sally Hawkins played “Mrs. Rita O'Grady” who lead the woman to the creation of the Equal Pay Act which is still in law today in Great Britain. A law which changed equality for woman around the world for decades to come. Great Film. Tends to be just a little dry in the drama where a pinch of Hollywood could fix, but a great movie still. Solid 4 stars out of 5

Engaging and historic film. Excellent character actors. Men as well as women will enjoy. A little corny at times, but the overall work is top-notch.

Magnificent film that opened my eyes to the passage of the ERA in England and in other nations. It also made me re/evaluate my opinion of Ford Motor Company. A must see. It is also an enpowering portrayal of how one individual/ a woman can make a change in a nation with tenacity and sacrifice.
