The sexual revolution.
In 1971, the world was changing.
But here at home, time stood still.
In our little village, we missed out on everything going on in the outside world.
OK, be good at school. Yes, Mummy.
Have a good day. Have a good day.
That's Father-in-Law's stuff, it's been mended.
Thanks, Theres. He could do with buying new things.
He's much too stingy for that.
How is it going with him? You know what he's like.
The women at the club were asking after you. When are you coming back?
We'll see. I just don't have the time.
Come on. You can manage once a week to get away from the farm for a bit.
We miss you.
Turn the music down!
She is not talking to us. Not a word. For a week now.
Has something happened?
We have grounded her.
She is constantly hanging around with some man.
She has a new one again.
Do you know what they call her in the village?
The village bike.
Hanna! For God's sake!!
Nora, can you talk to her? She might listen to you.
You two have always got along well.
Did Mother send you?
She's worried about you.
They've locked me away and banned me from seeing Gioni.
Because he's got long hair. And he's older than me.
Hanna, listen As a woman, you shouldn't just give yourself away.
Once you get a bad reputation, you'll never find a decent man.
I don't want to stay in this dump and become a housewife anyway.
You mean like me?
With Gioni, it's serious.
You said that last time too.
I'm fed up of this village and all the country bumpkins.
Gioni is studying in Zurich at the Art College.
If Gioni is the one, he will wait for you.
Until I'm an adult? That will be another three years!
I just want to see him once more.
To say goodbye.
You know what? I'll talk to Theres.
If I come too, they might let you go.
But you have to promise me to do what your parents tell you.
You mustn't make it so hard for them.
It is also called the Silent Ocean.
Or the Great Ocean.
The Pacific is home to huge numbers of fish.
And those that live right at the bottom never see the sunlight.
Can you imagine that?
There are all sorts of amazing creatures living in absolute darkness and silence.
Large and small.
Some with spots and some with stripes.
And see-through ones.
And they have no idea that there is sunshine and light further up.
I hope your measurements are right.
How is our little pansy?
With his pretty curls Is that a perm or are they real? Kude, that's enough.
Who does your hair, darling?
Don't you have any work to do?
As you all know, there will be some more restructuring this year.
This will affect the staff.
Mr Ruckstuhl I would like to appoint you manager of the joinery division.
You will start as soon as you are back from reserves training.
Now on to something else...
On the 7th of February, there will be another vote on women's right to vote.
This is exclusively the result of propaganda from the left wing.
We at the "Anti-Politicisation of Women Action Committee " represent the interests of the vast majority of Swiss women who do not want the right to vote.
Our committee relies on all the support it can get.
If you are on our side, please take a deposit form with you.
We welcome even small donations.
You have leadership qualities, Mr Ruckstuhl. The men respect you.
I'm sure you won't disappoint me. Thank you, Ma'am.
Of course, you will be given a pay rise.
We thought 150 francs Say hello to your wife.
TRAVEL AGENCY KUONI
I thought Miss Wipf was going to fire me.
You can never tell with people like her.
Do you get more pay too?
Yes, a few francs.
Food is ready!
Boys, food is ready!
Three. One, two, three.
To Hans' promotion! Congratulations.
Department Manager Cheers! Cheers!
Do you want water? I'd like some bread.
I heard you want to sell a piece of the forest I got a really good offer.
You are destroying the farm.
Enjoy your meal everyone. Enjoy.
That was the first piece of land our family bought.
You cannot flog it off!
I'm sure Werner has thought about it carefully. Don't meddle.
The Farm is none of your business.
We shouldn't be talking about this at the table.
So I'm not allowed to say what I think.
I was driven from my own farm.
Father-in-Law, leave your son to it.
You have no idea how to run a farm.
And your daughter is out of control too. What do you look like, girl?
What do you mean, Grandfather?
The hair or the skirt? Always talking back!
It wouldn't have happened in my day.
Mummy, what is a village bike?
It's a woman that all the men Idiot!
This family should be ashamed.
If you were a real man, Werner, you would do something about it.
Luckily, we don't have any girls.
Boys can be tricky too.
But at least they will not come home pregnant.
Girls don't get pregnant by themselves either, Hans.
What would you think if I went to work again?
Work? Somewhere else?
Just part time.
There was an advert in the paper today from Kuoni.
That's where I did my training. Wouldn't it be good if I could earn a little extra money too?
We're doing OK, aren't we?
Then maybe we could afford a holiday.
My little Bird, next year we'll go somewhere.
I'm earning more now too.
I would like to do something different Cleaning and washing socks all the time gets boring after a while.
I have got an idea I'll get you pregnant again, then you wouldn't be bored any more.
Hans, I'm serious. Me too.
Shall we meet back here?
In two hours. What?
Don't worry. We're just going for a ride.
No, absolutely not. You cannot do that!
For god's sake!
Would you like to join our association?
What association? The Herisau Womens' Association.
No thank you. We are fighting for the liberation of women.
But I don't need to be liberated. Aha!
So you don't feel you need liberating?
All day, it's the same thing. I'm fed up of hearing it!
It's because of women like you that there is no progress.
We need to hold together and fight, or we will never get the fight to vote'. Luz“.!
She is very passionate.
I'm not actually against it.
But you probably don't say out loud that you are in favour.
What's the use? It won't make any difference.
The more we push, the more the men do what they want.
Thank you! No, no, it does make a difference.
The vote on women's right to vote in February is thanks to all the women who have been fighting tirelessly for 100 years.
Motions, petitions, applications, demonstrations, letters They have not let themselves be discouraged.
Especially here in the countryside, we need brave women who dare to express their views out loud.
Take a couple of brochures with you.
They explain everything better.
And these, and these, and that.
They are free.
What? To Zurich?
Yes, and she said she is not coming home.
She called an hour ago.
My God, Theres.
I am so, so sorry.
How could you leave her alone with that man, Nora?
She said they were just going for a quick ride.
She was giving you the runaround too, just like the rest of us.
There will be consequences for her.
No doubt about it.
I'm going to bed.
Nora, it's not your fault.
The way she used me like that When her bloke realizes she has no money, she'll be back home in no time.
About this job advert I've been thinking about it. I'd be home in the evenings.
We'd just have to eat a little later.
And I'm sure I can find a solution for the boys' lunch.
But we've talked about this already.
But we didn't finish.
Won't it be too much for you? The household, my father, the boys I don't want my sons having to eat tinned ravioli.
But your sons like it.
I also don't want you being around strange men all the time.
Other employees, customers, the boss!
But Hans! And I'm sure you can imagine what it would be like at work.
Ruckstuhl's wife has to go to work, because he doesn't earn enough.
I don't want that, Nora.
We could at least try it out for a bit.
You can't do it without my permission anyway. That is the law.
The law? Yes, Nora. The law.
I have to go.
There is the house-keeping money for the next two weeks.
SWISS MARRIAGE LAW
When is breakfast?
I'll be right there, OK?
Please, do something! I need your help.
Talk to my father!
This is a sensible educational measure. We only want the best for your daughter.
We at the Guardianship Office have experience with cases like these.
I just need your signature, Mr Ruckstuhl. Here.
What's going on?
Administrative detention in a children's home.
Especially with young women, this can prevent, everything going wrong.
Don't you think we could talk to Hanna again? All of us, nice and calmly.
She had lots of warnings. Now it's enough. It has to stop somewhere!
She was found in a flat in Zurich.
The only girl with lots of young men.
Cannabis had been consumed.
We need to protect her from herself.
Theres, don't do this!
Decisions of this kind are the responsibility of the head of the family. The father has ultimate responsibility for his children.
Don't worry. Goodbye.
We just want the best for Hanna.
We have a special guest for our group today. Miss Charlotte Wipf, President of the Anti-Politication of Women Action Committee.
Thank you. Thanks, Magda.
Is it true, that Hanna was taken into guardianship?
It is an honour for me Yes.
...to talk to the Women's and Mothers' Club today. How awful for Theres and Werner.
How awful for Hanna.
I do not need to explain to you, why what they call emancipation is in reality a curse for us women.
Ladies, it is a privilege to be able to dedicate oneself completely to one's family.
I had to manage the family company.
That left no space for a husband and children.
So I know what I'm talking about. Although Swiss women do not currently have the right to vote, they can use their feminine influence to get what they want.
Equality of the sexes is a sin against nature.
Ladies, women in politics are simply against the Divine Order.
Bravo. I bet she just wants money.
Every franc donated helps support our mission.
She just doesn't want to lose her position in the village. She has these little "jobs" everywhere.
I am only giving two francs.
I don't wish to donate,
I am in favour of women's right to vote.
Fortunately, your opinion does not count, Mrs Ruckstuhl.
I am sure your husband will vote on our side.
Wow! I didn't think you had it in you.
Well done! I'm impressed.
I was in favour in 1959. Back then, I was the only one in the village!
NOW we can carry on.
Fighting for the right to vote for us women.
We can't let Miss Wipf have it all her way.
She thinks her opinion is the only one that counts.
Fredy, we would like to reserve the parish hall.
On 23 January.
Let me have a look.
The date is still free. Who is the reservation for?
I need to write it down For the local action committee for women's right to vote.
For? Yes, FOR women's right to vote, Fredy.
Are you deaf?
You were dead against it in 1959.
Nonsense, I've always been in favour.
We are organising an information event.
An information event?
"Women must remain quiet in society." That's what it says in the bible.
Find yourselves somewhere else.
"Thou shalt not commit adultery."
That's in the bible too, Fredy.
We need to advertise.
Posters, flyers And we could offer coffee and cakes.
And we need a speaker. The best thing would be to ask someone from the Association for Women's Equality.
Vroni, what are you doing? For God's sake, not again!
You cannot take your eye off Mother for a second.
An Italian took over my restaurant.
A dirty, stinking garlic-eater.
You can't just charge in here.
I spent 40 years of my life here.
I worked, day and night.
Look over there, it's your father.
We were so young, when we started out here.
He wasted all the money on women and booze. There was nothing left for me. Not a penny. I am living off benefits..
The miserable bastard!
My pub! Mother, as far as I am concerned, Father can rot in hell. But you still can't come in here.
You risk getting for trespassing.
And who will pay the fine? The Italian, should make a report.
Let them arrest me. Then I'll go to prison and serve my time.
Then at least I wouldn't have to live in that miserable little room at yours.
We did her up a lovely room.
You should be grateful that we took you in. Without us, you'd probably be living in the almshouse.
No doubt I'd be better off there. The pizzeria is not open yet.
But she is Vroni from the Baren.
The former owner.
Can I offer you a coffee?
No, thank you. That is very kind. Mother Yes please. That would be lovely.
When are you opening? Hopefully in February.
Is your husband doing the renovation himself?
There is no husband.
No husband? Yes, no husband, any more.
No, no, he didn't die. Unfortunately.
We just got divorced.
I'm doing the renovation myself. There is not that much. How come you speak such good German?
Most Italians only know a few words.
When I was young, I came to Switzerland. For work.
But then I went back again.
For love. And now I'm here again.
I want to make a new start.
It can't be easy without a husband.
It's not easy with a husband either. True!
You can say that again.
You are always welcome here, Signora Vroni.
And you If you ever need anything Help or anything, then A good haircut, soon.
Shall we go together?
Women's Demo in Zurich
And now, let's go shopping.
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to apply for the job as secretary...
Trousers. And tight ones at that.
You don't need to stare at my bottom all the time, Father-in-Law.
Enjoy your meal, everyone.
Can I have some milk, Mummy?
You know where it is.
And from now on, you clear away your dirty dishes.
Everyone can do their own.
And you can take turns drying up.
But.. we're boys!
You know how to put together a model railway.
You will be able to dry up dishes.
Hanna ran away from reform school.
Now they have chucked her into a women's prison.
It's a disgrace!
Is it true that Hanna is now in a women's prison?
That is what happens to wanton women like her.
But she is just a little wild.
And in love. For crying out loud, that is not a crime!
It is for us, Nora.
Especially for women. But that's not fair.
You can't just lock Hanna away with dangerous criminals.
What would you have done if you were her mother? You've seen how she is.
Can she have visitors?
Werner doesn't want to.
You at least should visit her.
She is your child!
Nora We shouldn't get involved.
He'd definitely listen to you.
He has even banned Theres from visiting Hanna.
I know Werner.
The more you push him, the more stubborn he gets.
You just don't want to fight with him. Listen, Nora When I'm back, I can give it a go.
But on the telephone Forget it.
Are you still there?
Tell me, how are you going to vote?
On what? - Women's right to vote.
That's for me to know.
Can't you even tell your wife?
Since when have you been interested in how I vote?
I'm interested now.
I am in favour.
But I still think that mothers should be in the home.
A yes from men for the love of women.
Where did you get this picture?
From the album of the Women's and Mothers' Club.
No, that's not on. That's not on at all.
And what about
"Hosted by"? You're speaking.
No, OK I'll welcome everybody, but I'm not speaking. You have to.
We said we'd ask someone from the Association. It makes a much better impression, when one of us speaks, instead of some intellectual woman from the city.
I think so too.
Then you do it.
But the whole thing was your idea!
Sorry, love Vroni is too old.
You are the voice of the new generation, Nora.
You can do it. Definitely!
Good. Now all we need is to get together the money for the printing.
Ladies, Mrs Affolter has tried the new Omo.
What did you think, Mrs Affolter?
See for yourself.
The washing smells lovely, and the stains have all gone and it's whiter than all the washing I have ever washed before.
Omo washes whites visibly whiter.
Hans didn't leave me enough house-keeping money.
Does Hans actually know what you're doing?
What? You know exactly what I mean.
Fredy from the council is telling everyone in the village.
Hans will be pleased when I call and tell him what his wife is doing behind his back.
At the same time, you can tell him all about your sex magazines.
So, about the house-keeping money?
A male yes for women!
Don't you think that's enough now? But we still have so many posters!
Go home to your children!
Come on Look, over there. We need a couple more posters over there.
Is it true about this action committee?
But you've never been interested in politics before.
I am now.
You know I'd love to go out to work again.
And Hans can just stop me.
That can't be right!
We could do with some help.
I don't want to talk to you.
Hanna! You are such a coward, Mother.
Hopefully I will never be like you.
You and Father are dead to me.
I want to go back to my room.
Please, Hanna! We need to talk
Come on, Theres. We can try again in a week.
It's all my fault, Nora.
I just sat there and said nothing.
Because I thought, now it's taking its toll.
I was a bad mother to my daughter I have failed, Nora.
No. I have ruined my child's life.
What should I do?
We went to see Hanna today.
You need to reverse the custody order.
I don't need to do anything.
Do you want it on your conscience?
We made a mistake, Werner.
She is still just a child.
I don't want to hear any more!
Things are hard enough for us with our business.
And now you are making everything worse with yours.
The whole village is laughing about those posters.
Dear Swiss citizens...
Where is Max?
Tell him to come and have breakfast.
He is ill.
Max, you are not ill.
Come on, stand up.
You need to tidy the room up again tonight.
Go on, tell her.
Tell me what?
He doesn't want to go to school.
Why not? Because of you! Everyone's laughing at us.
They say you're a kipper.
A libber, stupid, a women's libber. A woman who wants to be a man.
Bert doesn't want to sit next to me anymore.
And he doesn't want to be my friend either.
And there are a couple of others too.
Are you coming now or not?
I think we should go to hear what the young people are saying. I've never been to a demo Vroni, we need to cancel our event.
No! But why?
Has Hans talked you around?
No, he doesn't know about it.
My boys are getting teased at school. All the more reason to fight back!
I need to think of my family.
And everybody will know why.
Because we got scared.
You should have thought about that earlier.
We will make ourselves a laughing stock.
It's exactly what everyone expected.
Didn't you say, you could do with some help?
Theres, what has happened?
Nothing. I just bumped into the kitchen cupboard.
If I can't help my Hanna, then at least her mother shouldn't be an embarrassment to her any more.
Yes, we could do with help.
Are we going to the demo in Zurich or not?
Women's rights are human rights!
Women's rights are human rights! Women's rights are human rights!
Women's rights are human rights!
I'm starting to feel a bit old here.
We can get the next train home.
Come on. Let's join in!
We don't want to be branded as maids, cleaners and objects of lust any more.
Our men should clean their own shoes.
And wash their own socks.
Feminism is the greatest social revolution of this century!
It's about the right to abortion and equal pay. It's about marital law.
You lot need a proper seeing-to.
It is about complete social, political and economical equality for women!
Women's rights are human rights!
Women's rights are human rights!
Down with the patriarchy!
Glad you came to the workshop.
There's a party afterwards.
Oh, really? - Yes.
I am Indra. I come from Sweden.
Welcome to my workshop "Weibliche Kraft".
We all have it.
We all have it!
The fight against the suppression of women goes hand in hand with the fight against sexual oppression.
In other words: sexual norms are political instruments of oppression.
The personal is political.
The private is political.
And this is why we need to get to know our vaginas better.
The eye of god!
What did she say? Nothing. Something blasphemous.
Ah, OK. Outer labia.
All of you...
Every vulva is unique, and wonderful.
Like a snowflake.
Hedgehog, and wolf.
Knowing your pussy is the key to your lust.
And the first step towards freedom.
So Now let's have a look.
No. We're not doing that.
I'm not doing that. We should go.
Now. Won't we look silly if we just go now?
OK, good. If it does no good, it does no harm either.
I am 45 and have never looked at myself down there.
So why not?
Take your clothes off.
Take a good, loving look!
Take a loving look!
A silver fox.
I am sure that in this room, there are lots of women who have never had an orgasm.
Love your vaginas
...and the orgasm will come.
We would have been better taking the last train home.
I feel really sick.
I wish I could just sleep like that.
Mr Ruckstuhl, I hope you will bring your wife to her senses
You said you wouldn't be home until this afternoon.
What's this all about?
We are telling people about women's right to vote.
Come on, Nora, we're going.
I can't do that, Hans.
Of course you can. You're coming now. No arguments.
When is it starting?
We need to start.
Welcome to our Is it over already?
Dear women, dear men, dear citizens.
Welcome to our information event on women's right to vote.
On women's right to vote.
We organised this event because we think that it is important...
Gentlemen, A little discipline, please! Sorry.
With this event, we want to show, that there are people here in the village who are more than willing to stand up for women's rights to vote.
Exactly three people!
Unfortunately, there are still some false impressions on the subject in some people's heads.
In New Zealand and in Sweden, Iran, Afghanistan, Finland, Italy, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Mongolia, Mexico, Germany, etc.
What the opposition predicted, has not come true. On the contrary!
Today, many women go out to work.
They have careers and they pay taxes. So they must be allowed to vote too.
Objection, Mrs Ruckstuhl.
There are also foreigners who pay taxes. Should people who have no idea about Switzerland be able to influence our federal politics?
There are 1.9 million women living in Switzerland.
And they are ruled by 1,6 million men.
The men make the laws.
But these laws affect us too.
In general, things are good for us women in Switzerland, aren't they?
So the men aren't doing a bad job for us.
But we want to be a part of the law-making process and not be reliant on the goodwill of men.
But we don't want a "five-to-twelve" woman who just opens a tin at lunchtime.
And besides, I don't want to discuss politics with my wife.
We would end up with arguments in the family And most women don't want to vote anyway.
But that's not true!
How many of you men here have actually asked your wives about it?
Maybe we should take this opportunity to vote and see.
With the women. All together.
Yes, er Good idea.
Who in this room is in favour?
In favour of the right to vote for women.
And who is against?
Are you completely mad?
How can you betray me like that in front of all those people?
Me betray you? You made me a laughing stock. In front of my workmates, and my boss, and all those people.
On the telephone, you said you were in favour.
But I don't need to tell the whole village!
You'd rather betray your wife.
What on earth is up with you, Nora?
You want to forbid me from going to work.
Hanna is in prison.
And Vroni has nothing that belongs to her any more.
And none of that is fair.
Do you know what?
There are lots of things I think are not fair. But I don't make such a fuss about it!
They threw things at me, and you did nothing. You didn't say a word.
What did you expect? Be grateful it was only paper.
And now, I'd like to know where you were last night.
At a demonstration. In Zurich.
And afterwards we went to a party.
Ah, at a demonstration.
And afterwards you went to a party.
And who with, if you don't mind me asking, Nora? And all night?
How dare you talk to me like that!
I want an answer, Nora!
There is a tiger between my legs, Hans.
And I have never had an orgasm.
What is an orgasm, Daddy?
That was terrible. Cheeky and disrespectful.
I didn't speak a word to my husband for the whole of lunch.
But none of you opened your mouths and said something.
I was the only one back in 1959.
You can't blame us for anything.
Everyone knows you were against back then. Like all of us.
And what do you want to do now? Nothing.
The vote showed that not even the women are in favour.
But that's not true.
I am in favour Lots of women in the club share your views, Nora.
But it is difficult to say them out loud.
That's exactly why they think they can treat us like this.
Because we all sit quietly and never say anything Actually, we are stupid if we let them get away with it.
In Italy, people go on strike when they want something.
Just imagine what it would be like.
All the women in the village on strike.
None of you would dare anyway.
Women demand completely equal rights Down with the patriarchy What is it like to be married to a women's libber?
Do you do the housework now?
Does your wife send you to the laundry room, when you come home from work? Or something like that?
Hans folds up his pants Or he hoovers the living room!
Careful, or you'll end up gay, with all this woman's work.
But If my old woman was like that, I'd make sure I gave her a good seeing-to.
Dear Hans, we women have decided to go on strike.
And I am not coming home.
There is leftover casserole in the fridge for dinner.
If you need to do the washing, please separate the lights and the darks.
Not too hot for the darks. Different washing powder.
Max needs to clean his teeth. Watch him!
Father-in-Law mustn't forget his pills.
WOMEN ON STRIKE
I never thought so many people would come.
So we are not alone.
No, we are not.
That wasn't the kitchen cupboard, was it?
We haven't been happy for a long time.
Since Werner had to take over the farm, he has been sinking deeper and deeper into a black hole.
I hoped it would get better, when Father-in-Law wasn't living with us anymore.
The two of them fought tooth and nail.
But I think Werner is deeply unhappy as a farmer.
Did I ever tell you we used to dream about emigrating to Canada?
Back then, we had even made plans.
Really, he could do with some help.
But nobody is allowed to say that.
You have no idea how much strength it gives me to be involved in this thing.
Daddy, can you only cook eggs?
Don't be so cheeky, boy.
When I was a child, we had nothing but potatoes every day.
I want Mummy to come home.
Don't start crying. You're not a girl.
I would never have let my wife get away with this.
You'll see, as soon as they start missing their children, they'll come running home.
You didn't have to come for that.
I don't take them anyway.
Why didn't you say that you weren't coming home again?
Why? I only get in the way.
You just cannot do right by her.
Have a glass of wine with us, Magda? No thanks.
Sugo What you are doing cannot be good for business.
We women need to stick together, basta!
How long will the strike last?
Until the Sunday of the vote. We are taking a stand.
Oh, a stand My daughter believes she hit the jackpot with her husband.
Did you know that Magda studied law?
But then she met a doctor and gave it all up for him.
A woman who studied was too much for the ego of the esteemed medic.
You can't talk, Mother.
You never said anything to Father either.
You put up with everything. And now you start with all the big talk.
Unlike you, I never studied. And you are still making the same mistakes as me.
At least I'm not standing around in a stinky bar with nothing to show for it in the end.
You don't know what will happen in the end. Try some It's my grandma's recipe.
Lots of garlic Good. Garlic?
No, no garlic.
OK, I'm going now.
Why don't you join us?
And sleep with these women in the attic? No, thanks!
I have a spare room too.
If the doctor's wife went on strike, it would make a big impression.
No, absolutely not!
Cheers, girls! Cheers!
My god, that is almost as good as you know what I mean.
Mother! Although Ruedi was a scumbag, that side of things always worked wonderfully for us.
I don't want to know! There are different rules in the bedroom and in business.
What do you mean?
A woman can be the boss by day and a gentle bunny by night.
The two things have nothing to do with one another.
I wouldn't mind being a bunny again.
Werner has not touched me for a long time. Not even a cuddle.
But you have two hands and a pussycat to love.
And you, Nora?
Have you always been good, since you got married? Yes.
Hans is the love of my life.
But Sadly, he doesn't really know
$0.. I've never I've never had a
It just doesn't work for me.
Never at all?
That's what I just said.
But you don't just leave it to the man. You don't just lie back and it happens.
You need to do something yourself too.
What about by yourself
I mean, when you do it yourself Does it work then? myself?
Yes, so I haven't really done it very often You see, that's the problem!
She needs more practice.
Maybe she's not doing it right.
Nora Do you even know now where everything is?
Yes. So, practise, practise, practise. And don't give up too soon.
What did we learn in Zurich?
Love your vagina.
Luki, can you open the door?
You need to speak to your wife. They need to stop the strike.
Speak to your own wives.
But yours started it.
I'm not happy with everything either, but I'm not just going to leave her with the children because of it.
Mine has never complained, and suddenly nothing is right.
As I said, you need to sort it out with your own wives.
If this doesn't stop, we will have to take action.
WOMEN ON STRIKE
I'd like to talk to my wife.
She doesn't want to talk to you.
Leave it, Vroni.
We'll be fine.
Can we talk alone?
Nora, you're not getting anywhere with the strike. On the contrary The men need to notice that something has to change.
But it won't work as a full-on knee-jerk reaction.
But it won't work peacefully and patiently either.
Who helped you discover your tiger?
And you've really never ...?
I nun We need to practice.
I want you to come home.
There is something brewing and I'm worried.
We are striking until the day of the vote.
But I asked so nicely
Then stay with your stupid women.
Hey! What's going on?
You're coming back home. Home. Now. Come on!
Are you nuts? Come on now!
Let go of her!
What is this? Let's go. Pack your stuff up.
No, leave her alone!
No! What's going on?
Miserable bloody scumbags!
Vroni? Vroni! Vroni, what's wrong?
Quick, call an ambulance! Can you hear me?
Please get Magda. Put a pillow under her head.
Vroni? Can you hear us?
I'm not going back to the farm.
I have to get Hanna out of prison.
Maybe Magda can help me.
And where will you go?
To start with, to St. Gallen to stay with my cousin.
I'm going home.
I am suo marito. Her husband.
In the kitchen. Thank you.
Invitation to interview
that the significance of the differences between the sexes is great and that women should therefore not be given the right to vote.
Irrespective of the fact that we are convinced that the majority of women in our country simply do not want the right to vote. Goodnight.
Words spoken by the President of the Swiss Campaign against the white paper on women voting at a gathering against the proposal.
The propaganda from opponents to women's rights to vote
It's what you wanted. A holiday.
You and me. Like before we got married.
I got that job.
But I told you I didn't want you to.
And what if it is what I want?
I'm really trying. We're even going to the Cote d'Azur.
I don't want to go to the Cote d'Azur. I want to work.
And what does that mean?
Is that more important to you than our family?
And are you not thinking about our children?
But what good is it to the boys if their mother is unhappy?
Then let's get divorced.
Have you really thought this through?
Graziella Nora, darling!
Can I stay here?
My husband and I He wants a separation.
Maybe he just needs a little time.
You are not divorced.
I wanted to But it is complicated.
He says he can't live without me.
I don't want to grow old alone, Nora.
And how can I find a man here?
Come on, get up.
Leave me alone.
Come on. Get up. Up.
I can't go on!
And? How are things on the farm?
He can manage on his own.
There was never much help anyway.
The idiot couldn't even find himself a decent wife. Nor could you!
Shut up, Father!
Or I'll send you to an old people's home.
So, in my day Your day is gone.
And that's good!
And, in future, you can get your own beer out of the fridge.
Dearly beloved, family of the deceased.
We are gathered here today, to bid farewell to Vroni from the Baren.
We all knew her as the good soul of the village.
She was hard-working and perseverant.
And, above all, she was modest.
She never complained.
From morning to night, she helped her husband keep all the pub-goers happy-
She knew what it meant to "serve" and when her beloved husband died and the Baren closed, she too could take a well-earned rest.
Finally, she had the time to devote to her family and especially her grandchildren.
Vroni was a happy, content person because throughout her life she knew exactly where she belonged.
Where her place was in God's plan.
We all know that the Baren was her home.
And that she was really passionate about running the pub.
We all also know, that Baren didn't simply have to close.
It closed because her husband ran it badly and squandered all the money.
And Vroni could not do anything about it, because money is men's business.
Vroni lost the Baren, her home, because she was a woman, not a man.
Why should that be whitewashed here today?
Because it's so crystal clear how blatantly unfair that is!
I believe God's plan sees us all as people.
All different but still the same.
None better and none worse.
Men and women.
Yes, I believe that.
And in her last few weeks, Vroni fought for exactly that.
Freedom and justice.
And we should remember that today.
That is all.
In the 224th Swiss referendum, the people and state agreed to the introduction of women's right to vote.
A minor miracle!
Women's right to vote was even agreed in our village.
It was very close.
And then, a few months later, Hans and I a few months later, for the very first time.
For you, Vroni.
Theres did not go back to Werner.
With Magda's help, she managed to get Hanna out of prison.
Werner sold the farm.
For him, it was the first step towards being happier again.
And Graziella noticed that sometimes being in a couple can be lonelier than when you are alone.
And between me and Hans, a little bit of the sexual revolution arrived at last.
In 1981, the principle of equality between men and women was included in the constitution.
It was 1990 before Appenzell lnnerrhoden became the last canton to introduce voting rights for women.
