  • Austria
Audio Tracks 

The histories and stories of women have gone untold, been suppressed and forgotten over the centuries.

Johanna Dohnal – Visionary of Feminsm is a tribute to Johanna Dohnal, a significant woman in Austrian history and one of the first feminists in an European government. The film offers a role model for today's and the coming generations. We can see ourselves in her; in her victories as well as her failures.

A film against forgetting and for a future of equality.
