Summary
This documentary explores the extraordinary life of the Chinese revolutionary heroine and women's rights activist Qiu Jin (1875-1907). During the reign of the last dynasty in China, Qiu Jin boldly challenged traditional gender roles and demanded equal rights and opportunities for women. At a time when women's lives were often marked by repressive practices such as footbinding, arranged marriages, and denial of education, she envisioned a future where women would free themselves from the confines of tradition and emerge as strong and active citizens of a new and modern nation. Includes dramatic reenactments and interviews with family members and academics
