The Divine Order - Film Screening
Curated by: The Consulate General of Switzerland in Mumbai and G5A

On the occasion of Women's Day, the Consulate General of Switzerland in Mumbai and G5A Foundation for Contemporary Culture, present a special screening of 2017's acclaimed Swiss film 'The Divine Order'.


Political and religious leaders in Switzerland cited the Divine Order as the reason why women still did not have to right to vote as late as 1970. The film explores this surprising history through the story of Nora, a seemingly unremarkable housewife from a quaint village who must learn to become an unflinching suffragette leader. The Swiss countryside is untouched by the major social upheavals the movement of 1968 has brought about. After organizing the village’s first meeting to support women getting the right to vote, her family is mocked, bullied, and shunned. Despite the obstacles and backlash, Nora perseveres and convinces the village women to go on strike, abandoning their homes and families. The Divine Order is a heartfelt and captivating film about ordinary women demanding their right to an equal voice.
