Synopsis - For 50 years, the story of May '68 has been told by men, almost exclusively: political power, student leaders, trade union leaders, or commentators ... As if women had no place in this story, there had been only extras. Yet, and this is not one of the least aspects of these years, they have allowed the emergence of a modern and structured feminist discourse. This documentary gives to hear this other word, surprisingly confiscated since, this other feminine story, like an echo which resonates today at a time when the place of the women, their speeches, shakes all the structures of the society.

"Le mouvement des femmes remettait en cause les militantismes… Il n’y avait pas de leader. Pour lui appartenir, il suffisait d’être une femme, consciente de l’oppression et désireuse de la combattre. Il en résultait un certain désordre, gênant parfois, mais dans l’ensemble enrichissant". Simone de Beauvoir
