Wellington’s Embassy theatre hosted the New Zealand premiere of the Ring movies a few years ago. There’s another good movie showing there now. It comes from the producer of “Calendar Girls” and is called “Made in Dagenham”. It tells the story of women sewing machinists who went on strike for equal pay at England’s largest Ford plant in the 1960’s. American company executives threatened to pull Ford out of England, as paying women the same as men would be a worldwide disaster. They made the threat to Barbara Castle, Minister of Employment in the then Labour government. She called their bluff. The women got more pay, Ford stayed in England and Barbara Castle passed Equal Pay legislation in 1970.
