Straining under the confines of her traditional housewife duties and the pervasive conservatism of her small Swiss town, Nora reluctantly becomes the local face of the fight for women’s suffrage in Switzerland.

The Divine Order charts Nora’s journey as she bands together with a rag-tag group of local women and confronts the many public  restrictions as well as the complexities she faces at home.

Despite the rallying political movements and sexual revolutions of the late 1960s, Swiss women in the early 1970s had yet to feel any reprieve from the conservative social mores of the post-war period.

Without the vote, they had little opportunity to steer social change in their favour.
