Pike appears in the historical drama directed by Nigel Cole. Her character, Lisa, joins the 1968 walkout by sewing machinists at the Ford Dagenham plant over equal pay. Sally Hawkins, Bob Hoskins, Miranda Richardson, and Geraldine James co-star.
It was quite a small thing, as opposed to a nationwide movement. This small group wanted to change things but didn’t really want to see fame and attention from it. I saw one of the women being interviewed and she said that people kept coming up to them at the time saying: “Well done!” But they felt really embarrassed. So, I don’t know… But I like how it started off as a very simple grievance – a desire to be classified as skilled workers as opposed to unskilled.
