During the early 1900s, women on the Canadian prairies looked for ways to overcome their isolation. Out of the resulting farm women's organizations grew a group of women possessing remarkable intellectual abilities, social and cultural awareness, and advanced world views. This film illustrates the struggles of these women to achieve a more just and humane society within the framework of the farm movement and in the wider social, political and economic milieus.
