http://www.arthousecrouchend.co.uk/programme/?programme_id=4657372 It’s the latest event in the season marking the centenary of women getting the vote - STILL MARCHING... 100 Years of Women’s Protest on Film
THE WINSLOW BOY (U) + WOMEN IN PARLIAMENT PANEL When a cadet is accused of stealing and is expelled from naval academy, his family fight to clear his name through the courts andall the way to the House of Commons. Anthony Asquith’s gripping version of Terence Rattigan’s “feminist play” - itself based on a celebrated real-life case - stars Cedric Hardwicke as the boy’s father and Margaret Leighton as his Suffragist sister Kate Winslow. Robert Donat plays top lawyer Sir Robert Morton, employed to fight for “right to be done” – but who also happens to be an MP strongly opposed to women’s suffrage. 1948, dir. Anthony Asquith, 114 mins
Following the screening, there will be a panel discussion of the issues raised in the film and the role of women in Parliament: past, present and future. We are delighted to welcome Catherine West MP for Hornsey and Wood Green, Dr Mari Takayanagi, Parliamentary archivist and Co-Curator of the Vote 100 Exhibition Project at the Houses of Parliament, and Frances Scott, founder and director of 50:50 Parliament, which campaigns cross-party for gender-equal representation.
