Where Has It Got Us?

I have finished reading the suffragette history from The Ascent of Women by Melanie Phillips. Further to a post yesterday with quotes about the movement in the early 1900's, the epilogue posed some interesting thoughts on how the state of feminism sits today.

 Pondering thoughts on what the efforts of the suffragettes mean to the modern age of feminist issues.

And of the subject of feminism, I am currently watching Made in Dagenham. I great film full of passion and humour staring Sally Hawkins and Daniel Mays. Rumour has it that Abi Morgan, writer of The Iron Lady, Shame and The Hour, is currently working on a Suffragette script! Fabulous!

Still from Made in Dagenham
