    Sally Hawkins, Jaime Winstone and Bob Hoskins' new movie Made in Dagenham has premiered in London's Leicester Square.


    Set in the sixties, the Brit-flick is the real life story of around 200 women at Ford's Dagenham factory who went on strike over pay.


    Their actions turned out to be a very important moment in the fight for equal rights for women.


    Veteran actor Bob, 67, remembers when it actually happened:


    "Back in '68, I remember reading a newspaper and on page five there was a little article about these women going on strike for equal pay in Dagenham. And I thought 'Wait a minute, this should be front page news but it never was.' It was just outrageous."


    Joining Sally, Jaime and Bob on the red carpet were co-stars Rosamund Pike and Miranda Richardson.
