Marie Curie, Edith Wharton, Mata Hari, Rosa Luxemburg...about a dozen exceptional female figures take us into the heart of the Great War. What emerges from these overlapping stories is one single voice - that of all the women who fought through the horror of WWI. Whether spies, scientists, teachers, or writers, this army of mothers and wives came out of the trenches of their daily lives to bravely battle, yet today their feminist combat and patriotic drive have receded into oblivion.
Now for the first time - in 90/52 minutes of colorized archives - one film sheds light on their role on the frontlines of history during these four years of deadly conflict.
A 2nd episode about the role of women during WW2 will be available soon.
