A group of women's rights protesters interrupted the premiere of Meryl Streep's new film, in which she plays a women's rights activist.

The protesters, who are part of a group called Sisters Uncut, laid their bodies on the red carpet at the London premiere of Suffragette on Wednesday, and had to be carried away by security. It's unclear if Streep was present at the time of the protest.

According to the group's Facebook page, the demonstration was meant to express their outrage over Parliament's recent decision to cut funding for domestic violence services.   MORE
