Women Power

Directed by: Marta Dzido, Piotr Śliwowski

We are humans and we demand human rights! - argued Kazimiera Bujwidowa, an advocate for the woman's right to enter into universities. Let us dare to be free!- encouraged Maria Dulębianka, the first female candidate for the Polish parliament back when women had no voting rights. We want all there is to life! - exclaimed Zofia Nałkowska as she demanded equality both in political matters and in relation to social customs. No differences between the sexes! - demanded Paulina Kuczalska who was called the popess of feminism, and not without a reason.


They fought for their rights in a non-existent country. They were told: It's not the time for women's rights! But they rejected the idea of independent Poland without independent Polish women. Fightresses, patriots, activists, soldiers, suffragettes - they are the protagonists of the dramadoc “Women Power” (Siłaczki) about their year-long fight for the woman. Because - as Zofia Daszyńska-Golińska exclaimed in 1911 during a march of emancipationists held in Krakow: Rights are never granted! Rights have to be seized!

Solidarity according to Women

Directed by: Marta Dzido, Piotr Śliwowski

They were young, beautiful and they had the best years of their lives ahead of them. However they chose to rebel instead of settling down. Those who they rebelled against tried to destroy their marriages. Threatened them with placing their children in orphanages. They were offered relocation to another country on the condition they refrained from activities injurious to the system. They did not refrain from anything.

On a Saturday in August 1980, when workers, happy with having been given a raise, ended the strike and wanted to leave the Gdańsk Shipyard


they closed the gates and thus began the strike in solidarity.

What kept them going was a belief that the revolution was meaningful, hope for a change, a feeling of togetherness.

Solidarity according to women is a story about some of the brave Polish women whose wisdom and determination helped bring about a change of the political reality in Poland. The link between two aspects of the film is Marta Dzido. Born in 1981, symbolic daughter of the Solidarity movement, makes an attempt at locating and reinstating women who were written out of recent Polish history.
