PG-13 | | Biography, Drama, History
In 1912 London, a young working mother is galvanized into radical political activism supporting the right for women to vote, and is willing to meet violence with violence to achieve this end.
Emmeline Pankhurst, the leader of the British suffragette movement who helped women win the right to vote, was born and raised in Moss Side, Manchester England. In 1999, Time Magazine named her one of the top 100 most important people of the 20th Century.
Inspector Arthur Steed:
You women cleaned yourselves up well. Couldn't find a scrap of dynamite on any of you.
Maud Watts: Then why am I here?
When the suffragettes are within the Central Lobby of the Houses of Parliament, several railings can be viewed on the windows in the background. These were not added to the windows until 1917, 5 years after the film is set, in tribute to the suffragettes who chained themselves to them in 1908. The railings used to be situated in the Ladies Gallery of the Commons but were removed so as to prevent similar political protests at the time.
