Before the married couple in Amsterdam: "Do you also want a white slave woman? And do you (to the bride) want to stay a female slave? the action group Dolle Mina declares, it wants the abolition of the female slavery!"
After that you see an action at a male public toilet outside. The radical feminists demand that women get also public toilets in public places like streets or boulevards.
Typical for the Dolle Mina's were the naked bellies with the text 'Boss in my own belly', as a Pro-Choice message. Also in the movie you see how they disturb a Miss election. The young blond women with the short hair says. 'Those women are here to hear who will be elected as the cow of the year.' These Dolle Mina's were radical for their time, the Femen and Pussy riot of 1969 and 1970.
The beautiful blond woman with the hat in the end says: "I also want to say something to the men of the Netherlands. Don't go out alone on the street tonight. Take the hand of your wife with you. That's the only thing we tolerate. Becasue tonight there will happen something terrible with the men."
There terrible things that happened with men was that the Dolle Mina's switched roles and showed the men the sexism women have to face. They chased men, whistled at them, and to pinched their buttocks.
Here a video about a Dolle Mina congress in Arnhem and demonstration on a sunday in 1970
The voice over says that the demonstrators met some church goers, and that the presence of the Amsterdam Provo Roel van Duijnhoven and a German female journalist from Berlin (the blond woman with the camera in the short movie) gave the event an international element. It is funny to see the city I live in 22 year before I came there in 1992. How different people looked back then.
Old Dolle Mina's go into action for a public toilet in a Dutch Sprinter train which hasn't got any. (That's difficult for old people and disabled people and people in general)
In the Netherlands Feminism has been one of the prominent leftwing movements of the 20th century, in which the advancement and emancipation of women and other minorities was the aim.
Wilhelmina Drucker (née Wilhelmina Elizabeth Lensing; Amsterdam, 30 September 1847 - Amsterdam, 5 December 1925) was a Dutch politician and writer. One of the first Dutch feminists, she was also known under her pseudonyms Gipsy, Gitano, and E. Prezcier.
