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.

A man hating propaganda at its lowest
1 January 2016 | by jimbaker-31067See all my reviews

I patiently watched through all the episodes. It was a bitter experience sitting through the lies and exaggerations of Swedish state propaganda that throughout the show's development starting from the very first moment carries on an aggressive campaign of villainizing and demonizing men. The series portrays all men as rich, powerful, snobby, oppressive, corrupt and sometimes as stupid and abusive. All at the same time, somehow, all the women in the series, regardless of their status and standing, appear to be graceful, intelligent and angelic. The fact that some people would actually buy these extremist ideas fascinates me. According to the renowned historian Anita du Rietz, the series creates an inaccurate picture of the situation of women at the turn of the century. Anna Whitlock who is supposed to be the inspiration for this series had quite a different real life experience than that depicted in this man hating propaganda series. According to Rietz, female entrepreneurship was very common at that time. Rietz believes that the series has been adapted to today's prejudices about how society must have been a cheap attempt to create a huge contrast between then and nowadays. I recommend this series to all those interested in studying subtle propaganda techniques, gynocentrism and misandry.
