1) A great cause requires a great leader. In the film the amazing Rita O'Grady (played by Sally Hawkins) rises from obscurity and defeats a gigantic auto maker. It is a great David and Goliath story.
2) You have to know what you are protesting about. Equal pay for equal work was uncommon in the 60s but these women knew they were in the right.
3) You need the support of others. At first the men were not on the women's side because the strike was negatively affecting their jobs. Things changed when the men changed. Shared sacrifice was essential to succeed.
I enjoyed the film and its message. On a scale of ten I give it ★★★★★★★.
