Suffragette (Sarah Gavron, 2015) tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal state. These women were primarily working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. They were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality – their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. Maud (Carey Mulligan) was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller; it is also heart-breaking and inspirational.
Suffragette is suitable viewing for students in Years 9–12. The film can be used as a resource in the subject areas of English, Civics and Citizenship, History, Media Arts, Political Studies and Sociology.
