They broke Security Service codes, hid leaders of the underground movement, and helped the families of political prisoners. The names of the women who fought in the Solidarność-movement come up occasionally on the anniversary of Solidarity celebrations, but their stories have largely remained untold. The full-length documentary Solidarity According to Women by Marta Dzido and Piotr Śliwowski reminds us about the forgotten female heroes of Solidarność and gives us a new perspective on the last 30 years of Polish history.
