    Fresh off her Golden Globe for Best Performance by An Actress in a Motion Picture, Comedy for Happy-Go-Lucky, Sally Hawkins will star in We Want Sex. The film centers on the 1968 strike at a Ford car plant in Dagenham, an East London suburb, when 850 female employees walked out on the job in protest over the sexual discrimination they experienced in their performance evaluations. The strike lead to a huge spotlight on the women's rights movement and helped to secure equal pay for women in the workplace.

    The film's title refers to the banner the women carried while marching, reading "We Want Sex Equality." Somehow, the last word was left off one of the banners, thus reading "We Want Sex." The film has been in development for over three years and will finally begin shooting in June.
