About the film:
Eliane Vogel Polsky was an exceptional woman. A brilliant Belgian lawyer and great European, she contributed to the cause of women in Europe. As a lawyer before the courts and tribunals, as a researcher and professor at the university, and as an expert for international institutions, she campaigned unceasingly for equal rights and opportunities, for parity and a social Europe. Through exceptional archives and rare testimonies, this film traces her struggles and successes and brings us back to important moments in the history of Europe and the women's struggle for equality.
