An inspirational, feel-good film about the fight for equal pay - Made in Dagenham is set during the successful strike by 187 women car workers in the Ford Dagenham factory in 1968. Working in extremely impoverished conditions and for long arduous hours, the women finally lay down their tools when they are reclassified as "unskilled". In a protest that eventually leads to the Equal Pay Act; they take on their corporate paymasters, an increasingly belligerent local community, and finally the male-dominated House of Commons itself.
