Meryl Streep is in final negotiations to take on the role of iconic political activist Emmeline Pankhurst in the drama Suffragette.

The Ruby Films project, which also stars Carey Mulligan, will start shooting in the U.K. on Monday.

Mulligan plays a young foot soldier of the early feminist movement who is radicalized and turns to violence after seeing peaceful protests achieve nothing.

Streep has a smaller but important role in the film. Sarah Gavron is directing the pic from a script by Abi Morgan, who worked with Steep on The Iron Lady.

Pankhurst was the leader of the British suffragette movement who founded the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU) in the early 1900s.
