Based on a true story Made in Dagenham portrays a decisive moment in that decade of upheaval, when the fight for equal rights and pay was led – unexpectedly – by ordinary working class women with one foot in the kitchen, one foot on the factory floor, and ears glued to the pop coming over the radio and telly far-off London (19 kilometers and a world away). It’s a vintage “girl power” tale.
