"Politics is far too serious a matter to leave it to men alone."
(Käte Strobel, German federal minister 1966-1972)

DIE UNBEUGSAMEN tells the story of the pioneering women in German politics in the 20th century, who literally had to fight for their participation in the democratic decision-making processes against men obsessed with success and power. Undaunted, ambitious and with infinite patience, they followed their path and defied prejudice and sexual discrimination.
