Political and religious leaders in Switzerland cited the Divine Order as a way to refuse women the right to vote until 1971. This film centres around Nora (Leuenberger), a seemingly unremarkable housewife from a small Swiss village, who must learn to become a resolute suffragette leader in the face of adversity. In overcoming the mockery and bullying accompanied by taking a stand, Nora convinces the women of her village to go on strike for an equal voice. With a host of rousing performances and a timely subject matter, The Divine Order is heartfelt and inspiring.
