CINEMA: Suffragette | Monday 2 April

Meryl Streep stars in this British drama, set in 1912 and 1913, that tells the story of the suffragette movement.

This is part of a series at the Marine that celebrates 100 years of votes for women. This is in advance of our talk ‘Diane Atkinson Rise Up Women! Lives of the Suffragettes’; Diane acted as a consultant on this film.

Suffragette

Suffragette charts early feminism, in particular the women who went underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with the state. They were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve very little.

Radicalised 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.

The film’s characters are laundry workers, Maud Watts (Carey Mulligan) and Violet Miller (Ann Marie Duff), shopkeeper Edith Ellyn (Helena Bonham Carter), Mrs Haughton (Romola Garai) and WSPU founder Emmeline Pankhurst (Meryl Streep).  The film includes the suffragettes’ husbands Mr Watts ( Ben Wishaw), Mr Ellyn (Finbar Lynch) and Mr Haughton (Somuel West).

LYME REGIS CHILDREN’S WEEK: Children’s Yoga (3-7 years) | Tuesday 3 April

Join Sarah Higgins on a yogi-adventure.

Woman teaching children (7-10) yoga

Weaving stories out of yoga poses, children will take an imaginary journey as fearsome warriors to the jungle by boat, over seas and up mountains. Children will find out what its like to be a tree, standing tall and rooted to the ground; they will flutter like a butterfly, hiss like a snake, roar like a lion.

Beginning yoga early encourages self-esteem and body awareness with a physical activity that’s noncompetitive. As well as increasing strength, flexibility and coordination, yoga promotes concentration and a sense of calmness.

Sarah Higgins started teaching adults yoga 8 years ago. As a mother she is keen to share her love of yoga with children. Yoga with children is creative and noisy. Parents are welcome to come along and join in with your child.

It will be a truly fun 45 mins and a great adventure
