Lady Lobs Rock for the Right to Vote in First Suffragette Trailer

Brendan Gleeson delivering a misogynist rant + Meryl Streep firmly whispering “ Never surrender. Never give up the fight” in a fake British accent + Carey Mulligan scurrying around and looking worried in early 20th century garb = we’re going to Suffragette for Jezebel Movie night!

omg I hope they put Edith Garrud in it!!!

(who is Edith Garrud, you ask? ONLY the first female martial arts expert in Britain, who trained her fellow suffragettes in jiu-jitsu so they could serve as a bodyguard for Pankhurst. THEY CARRIED CLUBS UNDER THEIR SKIRTS, PROPLE.)
