Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter costumes from Suffragette on display...

With pay inequality for women in Hollywood (and the workplace) being a hot topic at the moment, Suffragette seems like a timely film to grace the big screen. Inspired by true events, the film follows Carey Mulligan's 'Maud Watts', a working wife and mother, who fought alongside other women from all walks of life for the right to vote in early 20th century Britain, including protests, chaining themselves to railings, going on hunger strikes and being arrested.

In the film Helena Bonham Carter stars as a radical women's rights activist, whilst Meryl Streep plays the infamous suffragette, 'Emmeline Pankhurst'.

If you like her 'Votes for Women' costume, be sure to compare it to Glynis Johns Mrs. Winifred Banks costume from Mary Poppins on display.

Plus if you're a fan of the actress, you may also want to take a look at her Queen Elizabeth costume from The King's Speech, her Western gown from The Lone Ranger, her magical Fairy Godmother gown from Cinderella and even her Bellatrix Lestrange costume from Harry Potter.
