A journey through a century of Swiss history, tracing the footsteps of those who fought to get out of their kitchens – and those who tried everything to send them back in – until they obtained equality of rights, the establishment of which often seems very fragile, even today.
From the first suffragette demonstrations in the 1920s to the feminist strike of 2019, this film summarizes the history of women in politics in Switzerland in the 20th and 21st centuries.
Based on exceptionally rich archival material and testimonials from female activists, this historic documentary production of Climage, directed by STÉPHANE GOËL, surely remains relevant today.
