The inspiring true story of how a group of Swiss women stood up to tradition in order to gain the right to vote.
We are celebrating the centenary of some women getting the vote in the UK, but in Switzerland that moment didn’t arrive until 1971. This warmly entertaining film follows dutiful housewife Nora, who is frustrated when her husband forbids her from taking a part-time job. She becomes an unlikely poster girl when she learns about emancipation and persuades the women of her village to stage a strike. A timely and enjoyable drama with a lovely lead performance.
