Meryl Streep & Carey Mulligan Star in 'Suffragette' Posters!

Meryl Streep, Carey Mulligan, and Helena Bonham Carter are fighting for their rights in these brand new posters for their film Suffragette.

Here’s a synopsis of the movie: Maud (Mulligan) is a working wife and mother whose life is forever changed when she is secretly recruited to join the U.K.’s growing suffragette movement. Galvanized by the outlaw fugitive Emmeline Pankhurst (Streep), Maud becomes an activist for the cause alongside women from all walks of life. When increasingly aggressive police action forces Maud and her dedicated fellow suffragettes underground, they engage in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse with the authorities, who are shocked as the women’s civil disobedience escalates and sparks debate across the nation.

The film will open on October 23 in limited release with a wider release planned for the weeks following.

Meryl Streep Urges Congress to Revive the Equal Rights Amendment

Meryl Streep has reportedly written a letter to each member of congress urging them to reinstate the now defunct Equal Rights Amendment.

“I am writing to ask you to stand up for equality — for your mother, your daughter, your sister, your wife or yourself – by actively supporting the Equal Rights Amendment,” the 66-year-old actress wrote. “A whole new generation of women and girls are talking about equality — equal pay, equal protection from sexual assault, equal rights.”

In addition to the letter, Meryl also sent a copy of “Equal Means Equal,” a book by ERA Coalition president Jessica Neuwirth.

The amendment was originally instated in 1972, but did not last more than a few years. The original amendment states, “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.”

Dakota Fanning, Freida Pinto, & Meryl Streep Support 'India's Daughter' Doc at New York Screening!

Dakota Fanning, Freida Pinto, and Meryl Streep strike a pose as they arrive at the screening for India’s Daughter held at the Baruch College on Monday (March 9) in New York City.

The three ladies got together to light about a dozen candles honoring the documentary, which is about a medical student who died in India after being gang-raped on a bus in 2012.

“Tonight we light these candles to honor the value and the work of Jyoti Singh‘s short, promising life,” Meryl said at the event (via ChicagoTribune). “She was India’s daughter. Tonight she’s our daughter too.”

“Ultimately, this is a film that needs to go out. This is not a shame-India documentary,” Freida continued. “This is not just an India problem; this is a problem that inflicts almost every country in the world. There’s not a single country in 2015 that is free of sexual violence against women.”

Also pictured: Dakota spotted chatting on her cellphone while out and about in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City.
