A short history of women in swiss politics in the 20th century.

Switzerland was one of the world’s last countries to grant women the right to vote and to elect representatives.
This film illustrates a century of Swiss history in the footsteps of some women who fought to get out of their kitchen – and some men who tried everything to put them back in – until equal rights were obtained, which in reality still seem rather fragile sometimes.
