Hawkesbury Central Library, Windsor will screen Suffragette on Thursday, 9 March at 10am and again at 6pm, courtesy of the National Film & Sound Archive.
This British historical drama tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal state in order to be heard and to obtain the right to vote.
