7.00pm – Made in Dagenham - Set in 1960s Britain, Made In Dagenham is a dramatization of landmark strikes protesting sexual discrimination against female workers at Ford’s Dagenham car plant.
Suffragette Rally with the Museum of London (3.15pm)
At 3pm the All Points Equal screening of Suffragette will commence with a fully immersive rally, in partnership with the Museum of London. In February 1918, after over half a century of campaigning, a parliamentary bill was passed that gave some women the right to vote in the UK, step back in time with the Museum of London for a special Suffragette rally and hear speeches that would have inspired the likes of Emily Wilding Davison. The rally will then take you on a journey through time, right up to present day feminism. This is a participatory performance with all encouraged to join in!
100 Years On - Free Live Panel and Q&A with Helen Pankhurst, Elizabeth Crawford, Suzanne Keyte and Sarah Jackson (5.30pm)
At 5.30pm Following the screening of the movie ‘Suffragette’ there will be a panel and Q&A with four female speakers. Each speaker will have a chance to talk about the movie, their campaigning work and answer any questions the audience may have for them.
Dr Helen Pankhurst is a women’s rights activist and senior advisor to CARE International, based in the UK and in Ethiopia. Helen is the great-granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst and granddaughter of Sylvia Pankhurst, leaders of the British suffragette movement.
She will be joined by renowned author and the owner of Women and Her Sphere Elizabeth Crawford, author and co-founder of the East End Women’s Museum Sarah Jackson and Royal Albert Hall Archivist and author Diane Atkinson.
