Good luck to all the cast and crew of new West End musical Made in Dagenham, based on the 2010 film of the same name.
The show is based on the true story of the 1968 Ford sewing machinists strike for equal pay. If you would like to learn more about the real life story then you can find out more and see a video with the women involved on our website Winning Equal Pay: the Value of Women’s Work.
Background research for both the film and the musical has taken place at the TUC Library. We have assisted the producers in finding information about the unions involved, their structure and voting procedures, and the clothing styles and union logos from the period in order to add historical accuracy to the props and set design.
