About the film-
Academy Award nominees Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter, and three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep, lead the cast of a powerful drama about the women who were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality in early 20th-century Britain. The stirring story centers on Maud (played by Carey Mulligan), a working wife and mother whose life is forever changed when she is secretly recruited to join the U.K.’s growing suffragette movement.
The film screening is part of Lowell Women’s Week, a celebration of women, past and present, in the community of Lowell. Visit www.lowellwomensweek.org for more information and a complete schedule of events.
