We are humans and we demand human rights!—argued Kazimiera Bujwidowa, an advocate for women’s right to enter into universities. Let us dare to be free!—encouraged Maria Dulebianka, the first female candidate for the Polish parliament back when women had no voting rights. We want all there is to life!—exclaimed Zofia Nalkowska as she demanded equality both in political matters and in relation to social customs. No differences between the sexes!—demanded Paulina Kuczalska who was called the pope of feminism, and not without a reason. They fought for their rights in a non-existent country. They were told: It’s not the time for women’s rights! But they rejected the idea of independent Poland without independent Polish women. Fightresses, patriots, activists, soldiers, suffragettes—they are the protagonists of the dramadoc Women Power (Siłaczki) about their year-long fight for the woman. Because—as Zofia Daszynska-Golinska exclaimed in 1911 during a march of emancipationists held in Krakow: Rights are never granted! Rights have to be seized!
