Film Screening: Suffragette


Join the Singapore Committee for UN Women to celebrate the history of the women’s movement and the progress we have made for gender equality with a screening of Suffragette.

The film follows the life of working wife and mother Maud Watts (Carey Mulligan) in early 20th-century Britain which is forever changed by the growing suffragette movement. Galvanized by political activist Emmeline Pankhurst (Meryl Streep), Watts joins a diverse group of women who fight for equality and the right to vote. Faced with increasing police action, Maud and her dedicated suffragettes must play a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse, risking their jobs, homes, family and lives for a just cause.

All proceeds from ticket sales benefit Singapore Committee for UN Women. Exploring the movements for gender equality is an important step towards ending structural violence and is in line with our Help Anna campaign.
