Happy Women's History Month!
To continue our month-long campaign bringing light to women's contributions to culture and society in Germany, we feature, Marlene Dietrich.

Dietrich was best known for her roles in the films Blue Angel and Shanghai Express. She starred in other films, including the well-known Morocco, where she continued to challenge gender and social norms.
