Royal Albert Hall presents a special screening of Suffragette with Q&A, as part of our Women and the Hall festival.
Directed by Sarah Gavron and written by Abi Morgan, Suffragette (2015) is inspired by the true story of women’s suffrage in Britain. Starring Anne-Marie Duff, Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter, with Meryl Streep, the film follows the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement – women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal state.
A post-screening Q&A panel, chaired by Oscar winning producer Mia Bays, will include the film’s director Sarah Gavron, producers, Alison Owen (Elizabeth, Saving Mr Banks, Shaun of the Dead) and Faye Ward (Jane Eyre, The Other Boleyn Girl), Helen Pankhurst, international development and women’s rights activist (and great-granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst), and Catherine Mayer – co-founder of the Women’s Equality Party.

Women and the Hall celebrates the women who were instrumental in the fight for women’s suffrage, and provides a platform for the women who are shaping our future, through a season of talks, film screenings and performances.
