Brief synopsis

In 1910 a small group of women risk everything in the struggle for self-determination, fair wages and the right to vote. They are ridiculed, ostracized, even arrested - but never disheartened. Soon more women - and same men - join them, and by 1919 they have succeeded: Austria and Germany introduce the vote for women. Most European countries will follow later.
