"Politics is far too serious a matter to be left to men alone." (Käte Strobel, Federal Minister 1966-1972)

"Die Unbeugsamen" ("Femocracy") tells the story of women in the Bonn Republic, who, like true pioneers, literally had to fight for their participation in the democratic decision-making processes against success-obsessed men. Undaunted, ambitious and with infinite patience, they followed their path and defied prejudice and sexual discrimination. The documentary filmmaker and journalist Torsten Körner creates an emotionally moving chronicle of West German politics from the 1950s to reunification.
