Women have always been committed to society; whether as individuals, together with others or in associations. Some took their freedoms for granted, others had to fight long and hard for them. Women pursued personal goals or campaigned for more rights or better education. Most of these energetic women made themselves strong for social causes. Women should look out for others - many of them had internalized this role.
Stories of women from Burgdorf and the Emmental could fill a whole museum. This exhibition is limited to a selection. There are women of today, but also those who were active decades or even centuries ago.
As doers, they shaped their lives and changed the world - in small and large ways, then and now.
