A drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality - their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. Maud was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, it is also heart-breaking and inspirational.

My 4 star rating is based on what is missing from the film, the ultimate triumph of the movement and it's impact on the characters. Yes the dates that the right to vote was given in Britain and surprisingly much later the United States, were projected however the story abruptly ended for the characters. I wanted more. The characters although well developed were largely two dimensional, even the main character although her circumstances and the impact of those experiences on her led her to become involved in the movement didn't have the depth that they would have certainly been to a woman involved as she was at the time. I wanted more.
Enter Carey Mulligan, who plays Maud Watt. She is a laundress, poor, married, and has one young son. She's been working since she was twelve in terrible conditions, scraping by to make a life. For the most part, she's accepted her lot in life. Appears to be happy in her marriage and a fulfilled mother.
Then she recognizes someone at work, who is part of a demonstration, and throws a stone through a store window shouting, "Votes for women!" Appalled, frightened, and not quite sure what to think of it, she eventually becomes part of the movement. She attends a rally to check out the cause but is not a suffragette filled with the heated emotion to bring upon change.
When she is arrested and thrown into prison for her participation, things drastically change. Her husband turns against her and locks her out of the home because she is an embarrassment and cannot be controlled by a good whack, like other wives. Eventually, unable to care for their son, he adopts the child out to another family. Maud loses everything -- home, marriage, and child -- which merely fuels her desire to fight the good fight more radically.
The movie focuses on more than women demanding the vote. It paints a picture of the struggles that women, in general, went through to become more than wives and mothers in a male-dominated society.
I've recently been reading historical news clippings from Salford, U.K. (my ancestry research), and came across an interesting article when women finally got the vote in 1918. It was reported that women were among the first voters in every polling district to show up the first time they could vote, eager to exercise their freedom. However, one woman interviewed by a reporter stated afterward, “Is that all it is?” Apparently, after the years of suffering to get there, when it finally happened, all the hype didn't meet the expectations of some ladies. I'm sure that's not the case with all who fought for the right to have a voice. Frankly, I think it was a bit of a sarcastic twist on behalf of the reporter.
As far as the movie goes, it's historically interesting. If you hate male domination and the thought that women need to be put in their place, this movie may not be for you. Violence is used against demonstrators as if they deserved every blow.
