The Divine Order (Die göttliche Ord nung) (12A)

Tuesday 5th June 2018 - 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm, Palmer Building

Blending the personal and the political, The Divine Order is a rousing story of a Swiss village’s struggle to give women the vote in a society where many endorse“God’s Plan” for women to remain at home. Nora (Marie Leuenberger), a hardworking mother and wife, reluctantly becomes the focal point for a strike in the village, much to the anger of the men – and some of the women. Although set in 1971, director Petra Volpe’s film is a timely reminder of what can happen when disenfranchised women speak up for their right to be heard.
