The film tells the story of the Rote Zora, a militant women’s group in the FRG, which in the 1970s and 1980s carried out actions against various facets of patriarchal power relations.
Narrations by various contemporary witnesses, interviews with a historian and former Zoras bring the history of the Rote Zora and the women’s movement of the time back to life.
The film shows that many of the Rote Zora’s themes are highly topical and offers exciting material for discussion on how to deal with this history today.
