We invite you to watch a short video made as a part of the project "Local history on Instagram", which was realized by the Krzyżowa Foundation in 2021.

The next video we would like to present you focuses on Karolina Widerström and was filmed in Stockholm.

The author of the film, Charlotte, presents the figure of the Swedish gynecologist, who was active in sex education issues at the turn of the 20th century. In addition, Charlotte presents Widerström's influence on the development of the legal aspect of sex work in Sweden and on the access to free medical assistance in cases of sexually transmitted diseases.

[Film available in German].
