The Feminist Initiative
This is a behind-the-scenes look at the women working to establish the world's first feminist political party in Sweden in the spring of 2005. It is a film about what women do with power, and what power can do to women. Even in one of the most gender-equal societies in the world, the Feminist Initiative's path to parliament sparks questions about gender differences in governance and the struggle to have women's voices heard in patriarchal, modern society.
