There’s time we can waste
and there’s time we must treasure,
please have both with me.

Okay people, are you ready to freak out about this?
Abi Morgan, brilliant brilliant writer of The Hour has written this movie called Suffragette, about the early steps of feminist movement, that will feature an abundance of badass female characters fighting against oppression. No seriously, take a look at the official synopsis:

SUFFRAGETTE is a thrilling drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized 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. [x]

And no, I’m not done here. Lo and behold: the cast.

Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham-Carter, Meryl Streep (yes you heard me), Romola Garai, Anne-Marie Duff, Ben fucking Whishaw, Brendan Gleeson and Samuel West.

Oh, and yeah, it will also be directed by a woman, Sarah Gavron, who’s known for Brick Lane.

I’m generally careful with advanced praise but DO YOU HEAR THE SOUND OF FEMALE CAST AND CREW KICKING ASS.

Also those of you who haven’t seen The Hour yet, do. Because this woman knows how to write her female characters (and, coincidentally, her male ones as well. What a surprise.).

I’ll be in my corner waiting for early next year (which is when they said they’d release it, but there’s no actual date set so far).

Oh boy… I want to see this movie!

A headache so strong you can sense Lord Voldemort.

Love doesn’t just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new.

When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. “This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar” she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. ‘My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’ It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions?


I’m in love with your honor, I’m in love with your cheeks.
