Political and religious leaders in Switzerland cited the divine order as the reason why women still did not have the right to vote as late as 1970. When unassuming and dutiful housewife Nora is forbidden by her husband to take a part-time job, her frustration leads to her becoming the poster child of her town’s suffragette movement. Her newfound celebrity brings humiliation, threats and the potential end to her marriage. But, refusing to back down, she convinces the women in her village to go on strike — and, in the process, makes a few startling discoveries about her own liberation. With meticulous attention to period details, this warm, thoroughly enjoyable tale about the fight for equality is both humorous and inspirational. ~OY
