The cast and crew of “Suffragette” have posed for a photograph to celebrate International Women’s Day on Sunday (March 8).
Meryl Streep, Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter were joined by director Sarah Gavron, producers Faye Ward and Alison Owen and screenwriter Abi Morgan.
Helen Pankhurst, the great-granddaughter of suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst, also joined the cast and crew for the special occasion.
Streep plays political activist Emmeline opposite Mulligan’s Maud – a fellow activist in the feminist movement – in the project from Pathé, Film4 and the BFI Film Fund.
Speaking about the importance of International Women’s Day, Streep said: “Every daughter should know this history, every son write it on his own heart.”
Meanwhile, Gavron said: “International Women’s Day celebrates the achievements of women throughout the world and I am overjoyed that my film can be part of that celebration.
“The story of the ordinary British women who were willing to sacrifice everything in their fight for the right to vote is an inspiration to all of us in our ongoing fight for equality.”
“Suffragette” will be released in the UK on September 11.
