A screening of ‘Made in Dagenham’

6th May 2014

A screening of ‘Made in Dagenham’

A funny, touching and vital salute to women, set against the back drop of the 1960’s, ‘Made in Dagenham’ is based on a true story about a group of spirited women who joined forces, took a stand for what was right.

Come and join us at this screening about women daring to stand up and push boundaries, women who changed a system that no one wanted to admit was broken.

A dramatization of the 1968 strike at the Ford Dagenham car plant, where female workers walked out in protest against sexual discrimination.

“A lot of wit and a lot of heart, an inspirational story for women’s rights” said Leonie Morris, manager of the Women’s Centre.

Prior to the movie, we will enjoy a brief talk from the Service and Food Workers Union about their court case for aged care workers to receive equal pay. A historic employment court decision about SFWU member Kristine Bartlett’s equal pay case has opened the door to the possibility of equal pay for women.

When: Tuesday 13th May 2014
Where: The Auckland Women’s Centre
Time: Doors open 6:30pm for 7pm Start
Cost: $10 door sale (eftpos not available) cash only please
