Made In Dagenham

This is a mover trailer for a new BBC film made about women who worked as machinists for the car company Ford in the 1960’s and who successfully fought for equal pay with men. I haven’t seen the film but bearing in mind my previous post will SERTUC women’s committee one day be also organising walking tours around the Ford Motor plant in Dagenham? I do hope so sometime soon. I do like this historical connection between now(ish) and then.
