The documentary claims that she defended values: equality of women, freedom of thought, universal suffrage, women’s suffrage, the struggle against oppression, liberation of cultural and religious prejudice, education, culture as an engine change, overcoming, courage, love not imposed but freely chosen, the facts translate ideals into action. A revolutionary of her time.
