Rødstrømper - en kavalkade af kvindefilm

Mette Knudsen, Denmark, 1985

35 min.DK/Documentary

This cavalcade reflects both the history of the cinema and the history of women's emancipation. It includes excerpts from about 20 films that have come into being more or less a result of grass-roots wishes to describe the realities of women's lives. It included recently filmed sequences linked together by a commentary which tells us about the first demonstrations, the Women's Liberation Movement, the fight for equal wages, the labour market, the situation of women in Third World countries etc.
