Red Carpet Protest at Suffragette Premiere

Written by  Oct 08, 2015
Feminist protesters jumped barriers as stars walked the red carpet for the London premiere of the film Suffragette. Groups of women lay down just a few feet from where the likes of Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter were giving interviews. The activists from the Sisters Uncut group wore tops with posters saying "Dead women can't vote" and "Two women killed every week".   Others held banners with the words "50/50 Parliament", demanding equality in the British Government.

"And I keep thinking I wish I could. I would like to be as brave as that. For these women to do that tonight, I think it's awesome." She said: "I think our (film) industry is a microcosm of the world in general. So our society is inherently sexist and so our industry is but all major industry is."     The scenes in Leicester Square mirrored those in the period drama, which tells the story of the British women's equality movement of the late 19th and early 20th century.
