Suffragette ★★★★★★★☆☆☆

The sold-out screening of the film on the 23rd of October was followed up with a Q&A with Natalie Press the BAFTA nominated actress who plays the renowned martyr Emily Wilding Davison, Faye Ward – producer, Helen Pankhurst the great-granddaughter of the infamous suffragette and Sophie Mayer – a respected feminist film critic and university lecturer.
