LIP V: CHRISTIANE AND MONIQUE

(LIP V: CHRISTIANE ET MONIQUE)

France, 1976, 30'

Carole 2

In 1976, in Besançon, LIP’s workers occupied once again the factory where they worked and reactivated the production of watches. Monique and Christiane testify about the difficulty of being a woman in face of the leaders of the trade union fight. In order to highlight gender racism, known as sexism, Monique proposes to change, in her narrative, “man” for “white” and “woman” for “Arab”. An eloquent and funny testimony unfolds.
