Bonander comments: “The idea with this video is to show a small part of all the women and transwomen that never should have been forgotten (in this particular video, Scandinavian women from the 19th- and 20th century). Also to connect the history to our present problems concerning equality; why do we remember the men but not the women? It’s a redemption, a provocation, a collective statement and is more important than ever in these metoo-days. To ask a woman to smile and stay ”pretty” is just one example of the pain we aren’t allowed to show to the world, a pain that is ignored and often forgotten. No more.”
