The process of women's liberation goes hand in hand with the building of the socialist state in the GDR. Wool spinners and collective farmers, city planners and architects, graphic artists and congressional delegates all discuss their lives as women in contemporary socialist society and comment on important social problems of their day.
This documentary was commissioned by the GDR Foreign Ministry for the International Woman's Year in 1975.
