5 Feminist Actors 'Suffragette' Should Cast Alongside Meryl Streep & Carey Mulligan
It was just leaked that Meryl Streep will probably be starring alongside Carey Mulligan in the upcoming film about the women's suffrage movement, Suffragette . Although Meryl hasn't officially signed a contract yet, the possibility of a Mulligan-Streep dynamic duo in a film originally titled The Fury has piqued our interest. The historical drama will feature Meryl as Emmeline Pankhurst, a mainstream suffragette who gave world-renowned stump speeches. Carey has been confirmed as a troubled low-level suffragette foot soldier whose frustration with ineffective peaceful methods eventually cause her to turn to radical violence.
Although these two leading heroines already sound like bonafide bluestockings, we would love to see even more Hollywood power-women join the bill. There were, after all thousands of women who participated in the suffrage movement, so why not add some more kick-ass feminist cameos? Here are 5 other actresses we'd love to see sign up to play these 5 famous suffragettes.
