Storyline

Switzerland, 1971: Nora is a young housewife and mother who lives with her husband, their two sons and her father-in-law in a little village. Here, in the Swiss countryside, little or nothing is felt of the huge social upheavals that the movement of May 1968 has caused. Nora's life, too, has been unaffected; she is a retiring, quiet person, well liked by everyone - until she begins to campaign publicly and pugnaciously for women's right to vote, an issue that will be put before the male voters on February 7th, 1971.

Incredibly engaging.
28 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

I assume that the characters in "The Divine Order" were not based on real people, as the filmmakers surely would have indicated this was the case. However, it doesn't matter too much, as the story is based on women's push for suffrage in Switzerland...the last of the industrialized nations to grant this freedom.

The film is set in a small town in Switzerland in 1971. Women's rights are pretty much unknown to this part of the world and folks just seem to accept that it's God's plan for men to be in charge. However, slowly two women manage to convince the rest of the ladies in town that their cause is just...but they really need to convince the men since they are the ones who need to vote in favor of this.

While this story could have come off as angry or anti-male, it's really not...but more about just giving the women an even break. It also accentuates how beneficial this could be for the men...without being preachy. Well worth seeing and very well written, acted and directed.
