This close-up portrait of Lizette Risgaard, the first woman to lead Danish trade unions, documents her difficult task as she tries to revive a failing organization’s original standing.

In 2015, Lizette Risgaard was elected by a large majority to head the Danish Confederation of Trade Unions. This almost unknown office worker was soon one of the most powerful women in Denmark. A staunch trade unionist in both body and soul, she immediately initiated radical changes in order to return a significant role to an organization that had lost about 500,000 members in recent years. This meant not only reaching a compromise with right-wing politicians but also adopting unpopular, yet necessary, measures. Will she succeed in negotiating good conditions for a new 3-year collective agreement, renew faith in the community, and win the hearts of union workers?
