Cope? We're women. Now don't ask such stupid questions.
1968: Rita lives in Dagenham and, like many local women, she works at the Ford plant stitching together seat covers. It's intricate work carried out in sweltering conditions. So why, she wonders, are the workers paid the same as unskilled labourers? Is it because the work is unskilled? Or is it in fact because they are women?
MADE IN DAGENHAM shows how, with a little help from political firebrand Barbara Castle, the Dagenham women managed to overturn an age old hypocrisy.
Producers Stephen Woolley and Elizabeth Karlsen on the drama about the fight for equal pay.
