Just saw this film on ARTE. I had never heard of this rebel with a cause from the late 1800/1900s. She rebelled against the textil factory owner where she workedand inspired her co-workers to go on strike for better conditions. She wasn't only up against the capitalist owner but the hypocrisy of the Catholic Church as well. When workers movements became more of a thing, she was up against them (male dominated of course) as well.
It's a portrayal of incredible tenacity, bravery, perseverance. Truly inspiring; you see the circumstances she lived under, had to endure, yet never gave up. A voice never heard before and almost forgotten but for the research of a french historian who brought her story to light.
You think you got it hard? Watch was Lucie Baud and other female workers were up against.
