A dramatization of the 1968 strike at the Ford Dagenham car plant, where female workers walked out in protest against sexual discrimination.
The film was screened for the Dagenham women before it went on general release.
All right, um, everybody out!
At least three of the Rover 2000 P6 cars that appear in the film including a Police car, are of the MkII version made from 1970. The rear pillar black vinyl trim and stainless hub caps with the Rover logo would indicate this.
Captions in the closing credits: "Two years later in May 1970 the Equal Pay Act became law. Similar legislation quickly followed in most industrial countries across the world. Ford Motor Company Limited went on to effect changes in its employment practices and is now used as an example of a good practice employer."
