Sabine Derflinger, Austria / Germany, 2022, 102 min., Documentary, DF

She is a publicist, feminist and, as such, a pioneer of female emancipation: Alice Schwarzer has always polarized with her commitment to the recognition of women’s rights as human rights. The founder and publisher of the women’s magazine Emma became internationally known for her book »Der kleine Unterschied und seine großen Folgen« (The little difference and its big consequences). Her campaign to legalize abortion, »Wir haben abgetrieben« (»We had an abortion«) gained wide recognition through an article of the same name in the magazine Stern. But who is the person behind this icon? Historical material as well as current insights into Alice Schwarzer’s working and private life, enhanced through interviews with companions, provide an answer.
