Suffragette is the first feature film to tell the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement who risked everything in the fight for equality. Based on true events, it explores the passion and heartbreak of those who risked all they had for women’s right to vote. Suffragette is the first British film for which the Houses of Parliament opened its doors as a location.
