ORIGINAL: By Movie Clips. From the film "Made in Dagenham." The efforts of the women depicted in the film led to the creation and adoption of the Equal Pay Act of 1970 in the United Kingdom. For more about their story and struggle, there's a blog about it here and a CBS News interview with the real women themselves done by Katie Couric, connecting to modern struggles for equal pay.
