Plot – When the brutality of the state began to be unbearable, some women formed the suffragette. They were militants of the first feminist movement who struggled simply to get the permission to vote. Some of them were workers, other ones belonged to the wealthy class. Gradually all of them admitted peaceful protests didn't lead to any result. Violence was the only way to realize a change. To gain equality, these women weren't afraid to lose everything, like job, family, children or their life too.
