Director: Sarah Gavron

Cast: Carey Mulligan, Anne-Marie Duff, Helena Bonham Carter , Meryl Streep

The foot soldiers of the early feminist movement were women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. They were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalised 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 Watts is one such foot soldier.
