‘Made in Dagenham’ is set in 1968 Essex. The community is a close and loyal network of working class solidarity.
The women of Ford Dagenham go on strike following a proposal to downgrade their skill set and subsequently their pay. This then highlights the massive inequality between men and women in the workplace when doing the same job.
Rita, an ordinary working class mum of two, and machinist at the plant, finds herself leading the fight for justice. After many setbacks and hardships for many families, the girls win out and Harold Wilson’s administration, led by Barbara Castle, passes law to promise equal pay.
