24.03.2014 The REAL Iron Lady: Meryl Streep is transformed into iconic political activist Emmeline Pankhurst in Suffragette

The last time she played an Englishwoman, she ended up with an Oscar for her portrayal of late Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
So after it doing it so well before, Meryl Streep is playing yet another iconic female British political figure - Suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst.
The 64-year-old actress was spotted in costume for the first time as she filmed scenes for her cameo role in the upcoming film Suffragette.

Parkhurst was a British political activist and leader of the suffragette movement who ultimately helped women win the right to vote.
Streep's job was made easier by the Edwardian period costume she wore from Emmeline's political heyday in the 1900s onwards.
The Devil Wears Prada actress donned a grey cloak with large flowing sleeves and a black collar over a black jacket with silver flower trimming and a white blouse.

The Sophie's Choice actress seemed to be portraying the activist later on in her life as she donned make-up that gave her more wrinkles, despite the star only being five years short of the age Pankhurst passed away.
Streep appeared to be shooting a scene where she spoke from a balcony, much like Pankhurst did to address the crowd of fellow women suffragettes.
Writing in her novel My Own Story, she opened up about such meetings: ‘These were all publicly announced, and each time the police, mingling with crowds, made strenuous efforts to arrest me. 
'By strategy, and through the valiant efforts of the bodyguard, I was able each time to make my speech and afterwards to escape from the house. All of these occasions were marked by fierce opposition from the police and splendid courage and resistance on the part of the women.’
Accessorizing in the Victorian era: The actress completed the look with a pair of grey mittens, a pearl necklace, and a silver medal pinned to the collar of her coat

Emmeline spent decades fighting for women's suffrage, only to die just a few weeks before the British Government passed the Representation Of The People Act which extended the vote to all women over 21.
At the time of her death fatigue and illness had become a regular part of her life - due to the years  of touring, lectures, imprisonment, and hunger strikes.
It's believed that the scandal surrounding her daughter Estelle Sylvia also took it's toll on her.
Addressing the crowd: Emmeline was known for giving speeches from the balconies of the homes she stayed in

In April 1928 her middle child gave birth out of wedlock and gave an interview in a paper in the US claiming 'marriage without legal union' was the most sensible option for liberated women. 
Meryl is only in the UK for two weeks to shoot her small role as Emmeline, after being convinced by the producers behind The Iron Lady, in which she portrayed Thatcher, to take part.
The movie starts Carey Mulligan as a laundress who demands equal pay to men after finding out she was being paid the third of what male workers took home.
Definitely not a ball cap: Streep made sure to adjust in order to keep the large hat on as she filmed the scene

Speaking about the role to the Mail's Baz Bamigboye recently, Meryl said: 'She was born in Manchester, but studied in Paris - and spoke fluent French. I don’t know whether she kept her Northern roots in her accent.
'I am as fascinated by Emmeline Pankhurst as I was by Margaret Thatcher.
'These are women who made a difference, whatever you thought of them.'
Birds of a feather: The star also made sure that the black feathers on the back of her cap were fluffed up
