In the 1930s, society in the country faces the opportunity for women to obtain equal suffrage. The intellectual elite refers to this possibility with mixed feelings. On one hand, there are undoubted successes of independent and confident Bulgarian women who have established themselves in their profession, on the other – they are still a minority. The majority of women with predominantly provincial origin have no university education and sufficient experience. Their participation in political elections that they do not understand can not bring about positive changes in the country. Boris Denev, an established and sought-after artist, actively making his mark as a publicist does not share such opinion. The sense of humor and irony that he uses in his feuilletons are not liked by the representatives of the Bulgarian Women‘s Union, who are actively working for the implementation of equality. The artist begins a discussion with Union Secretary Dr. Plocheva in the capital‘s press. There are supporters of opposing views, each of them is convinced that his position is the most correct for defending Bulgarian identity in a difficult and unstable political environment.
