FEMOCRACY tells the story of the women who, from reconstruction after the Second World War until today, have unrelentingly fought for and improved women's rights in politics and in the country. They paved the way for Angela Merkel, the first female German Chancellor. The female pioneers literally had to fight for their place in democracy with success-obsessed and position-hungry men. Undaunted, ambitious, and with infinite patience, the female heroines of FEMOCRACY followed their path and defied prejudice and sexual discrimination.
Female politicians of the past get a chance to speak today. Their memories are both funny and bitter, absurd and sometimes frighteningly current. An emotionally moving chronicle of West German politics from the 1950s to the German reunification.
