What Is The Plot of The Law According to Lidia Poët?
As we mentioned before, not a lot about The Law According to Lidia Poët has been revealed just yet, despite the release date nearing, but Netflix has given us an official synopsis, so let’s take a look at that before we dive into any further details about the plot of The Law According to Lidia Poët:
“In late 19th-century Turin, the young Lidia Poët, fights against everything and everyone to get what is rightfully hers: to be enrolled in the official register of lawyers. A profession, at the time, reserved exclusively for men. Nevertheless, nothing could stop her dream of becoming the first female lawyer in Italy.”
So, according to the official synopsis of The Law According to Lidia Poët, we know that the upcoming series is set in the late 19th century, at a time when women weren’t allowed a lot of basic rights. While a lot of women had accepted their fate, Lidia Poët wasn’t one of them. She was ambitious and she had one dream above all, to become a lawyer.
She had the talent, and the qualifications, and frankly, she was smarter than most men who sat comfortably in their offices. Being a lawyer was a right reserved for men, which might seem crazy right now, but as we mentioned before, The law according to Lidia Poët is based on true events, so why don’t we tell you a little bit more about who this drama series will be based on.
Lidia Poët was born in 1855 and studied at the University of Turin, Faculty of Law, where she received her degree in 1881. She then worked at an office of an advocate and also assisted in tribunals. After two years of grueling hard work, she was finally inscribed in the role of advocate, however, the attorney general was not pleased by this, not because of Lidia’s qualifications but because she was a woman. Despite other countries having female attorneys at that time, Italy didn’t seem to be ready for it, in fact, it was legally forbidden by law for women to practice law.
Lidia Poët fought, and she fought hard for herself and all the ambitious women with dreams that were just as important as the dreams of men. At the age of 65, Lidia Poët was inscribed in the role of advocates in Turin.
