Running Time  96 minutes

It is shocking that women in Switzerland did not have the right to vote as late as 1970.

This surprising history is explored through the story of a housewife in an isolated village: As a national referendum that could give women the vote approaches, she organizes her neighbors, resulting in her family being mocked, bullied, and shunned.

A strong ensemble cast brings the story to its inspirational conclusion when Swiss women finally secure the right to vote in 1971.

The Divine Order is Switzerland’s submission to the Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film.

District provided services such as safety patrols by off-duty HPD officers, graffiti abatement, trash pick-up, maintenance of esplanades, among other services outlined in the Districts’ Assessment Plan, that are supplemental to services provided by the City of Houston, had been reduced in Mid-November and ceased completely as of December 11. The District had to cease the services due to unpaid assessments from some of the commercial property owners within the District. Please direct questions regarding the cessation of services to Executive Director, Ben Brewer at BBrewer@MontroseDistrict.org. We are committed to helping our neighborhood remain the safe, vibrant and attractive place to live and do business and would like to hear from you on how we can continue to work together in this effort.
