This year marks the 50-year anniversary of real events that happened in Dagenham in 1968, which are the inspiration for Made in Dagenham.

Rita’s a busy mum, loving wife and hard working Ford factory employee.

But Rita and her female colleagues find themselves working long hours for far less money than the men.

Finding a voice she never knew she had, Rita leads the women on a trailblazing battle for equal pay, taking on the unions, Ford’s top brass and the Government.
