Der Film basiert auf 15 Interviews mit nordirischen Frauen, die im Zeitraum 2009-2017 geführt wurden.

Ihre Namen sind – anders als die Namen ihrer männlichen Mitstreiter und Genossen – nicht im öffentlichen Narrativ des Konflikts zu finden.

Interviews mit Emma, Janice, Jacqueline, Evelyn G.,Veronica, Nuala, Kathe, Susie, Beryl, Debbie, Evelyn B., Eva, Jo-Anne, Marie, Sharon.

„We did what had to be done“ is a documentary about the role women played in the Northern Irish Troubles. The women describe their roles in the war as a reflection of their individual political conviction, but above all, they see themselves as those who have made pragmatic decisions, as those who simply did what had to be done.

This film is based on 15 Interviews with Women from Northern Irland, which were recorded and edited between 2009 – 2017. The film also follows the emancipatoric effects of the armed conflict: While their male combattants were in war or in prison the women served as heads of their communities and families. An Emancipation that was slowly rewinded with the peaceprocess, which brought women back to the positions they had before the war.
Unlike their male counterparts, these women are rarely mentioned in the recorded history of this conflict. This documentary wants to tell their story.
