Not all battles are violent. Meet a courageous group of women who takes on both the male rulers of the day and a corrupt grocery industry. Savvy is their strategy and cans of healthy food are their weapons. The three hour drama series "Miss Friman's War" is a humorous and poignant story about friendship and fighting for your dreams. It addresses topics that are as relevant today as they were then: the demand for good, unspoiled food and the struggle for equal rights. Although "Miss Friman's War" is a work of fiction, the story is partly based on actual events around the all-female food co-op "Svenska Hem", which was founded long before women even had the right to vote.

User Reviews

Swedish TV history at its best
29 December 2016 | by fannyelisabethdahlinSee all my reviews

Miss Friman's War is a clever, well-written och beautifully exercised story about a group of women from various parts of the Stockholm class community in the early 20:th century. Mainly the characters are well-developed and each of them has a story to tell. It's main theme is women's liberation movement but it also brings up class issues, the food industry and relationships without feeling excessive or wanting to take on too much.

Being equally empowering, joyful and sad Miss Friman's War reminds us about what it took to get to where we are now, how hard these women fought to give future female generations the right to vote and live a life outside of their homes.
