Sarah Gavron Explains Why She Didn't Cast Women of Color in Suffragette



"We interrogated the writ and photographic evidence, and the truth is, it's very, very different picture from the U.S. The U.S. had a lot of women of color involved in the movement, some who were excluded, some who weren't excluded. But in the UK, it wasn't like that, because we had pockets of immigration...it was later, around the war, around the fifties, that really the UK shifted and changed in a really wonderful way to produce what we have today," Gavron said.
