Grab your seats now!

To celebrate the theme of International Women’s Day 2018; ‘Press for Progress’ and to coincide with 100 years since some women in the U.K could vote, Partners will be hosting a special Cinema Club. To celebrating the enduring strength and spirit of the suffragette movement and women everywhere, we have decided to screen the blockbuster 2015 movie, Suffragette, starring Helena Bonham Carter, Meryl Streep and Carey Mulligan.

               “A drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality - their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. Maud was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, it is also heart-breaking and inspirational” (imbd.com, 2018).
