A series that portrays the beginning of the battle for the role of women in Portuguese society.

When a lecture about her manifesto goes wrong, a writer, Ana de Castro Osório, decides with the help of her companions, Adelaide Cabete and Carolina Beatriz Ângelo, to create a league that fights for the equality of Portuguese women.

Women of the Republic is a dramatic historical series, set in the early 20th century.

It all starts in 1908, in the year of the Regicide of D. Carlos, a politically unstable time when the power level of the Monarchy was decreasing and, consequently, that of the Republic was increasing.

Ana, a children's book writer, decides to write a feminist manifesto. She is ambitious and believes that she can make a difference.

Joins with the doctors Adelaide Cabete, a woman who fought hard for her education and ended up becoming one of the first doctors in Portugal and, Carolina Beatriz Ângelo, the first Portuguese woman to vote.

This series will follow these women in their battle to be heard and respected in the same way as the man. It will represent oppression and the struggle for freedom of identity, a theme that remains as real today as it was 100 years ago.

These are the Women of the Republic, let's give a voice to your story!
