Made in Dagenham centers on Rita O'Grady (played winningly by the Happy-Go-LuckySally Hawkins), a female machinist at the Ford factory in Dagenham. She and her colleagues sew together the seats for the cars on the line. When an executive order re-grades their jobs as unskilled - giving them the same low wages as the teenaged boys who sweep the factory floors - the women demand the grade of skilled workers and the pay raise attached to that title. When they are nonchalantly rebuffed by upper management, Rita is encouraged by her supervisor and friend Albert (the brilliant and heartbreaking Bob Hoskins) to organize and go on strike.
