Chantal Birman has devoted her life to defending abortion and women’s rights. At nearly 70, she has no intention of retiring from her job as a midwife. From painful moments to joyful experiences, this road movie through Paris housing projects offers a special take on the place of mothers in society.

Our take

An intimate portrait of an activist and midwife and a clear-eyed, sympathetic look at the lives of working-class mothers, Sheroes reminds us support sometimes comes in the simple form of conversation. Belonging to a most pragmatic tradition of French feminism, the film is an apprenticeship in care.
