Suffragettes

As this year marks the 100th anniversary of votes for women there really is no greater time to be involved in such a powerful documentary about the Suffragette movement. Yesterday I voiced the Scottish Suffragette, Tess Billington, in Banners and Broad Arrows by Gypsy Gold Films. This feature documentary tells the story of the Suffragette movement from its inception in 1903 to its demise at the outbreak of the war in 1914.

 

Other voices include: Mark Rylance, Sian Phillips, Gemma Arterton, Hayley Mills, Lily Cole, Helen McCrory as Mrs. Pankhurst, and narration by Fiona Shaw.

 

Quite a cast and quite a story!
