Winner of the Audience Awards at the Traverse City and Tribeca Film Festivals,
this absolutely charming film follows an unassuming Swiss housewife, Nora, from a
small village who realizes that women’s rights are human rights. In 1971, women in
Switzerland still did not have the right to vote! Nora becomes determined and cre-
ates a suffragette movement in her village that brings humiliation, threats and near
divorce. She doesn’t back down and convinces the women to go on strike. This
warm, heartfelt and captivating film will inspire you as well as make you realize the
privilege of having choice and a voice.
