Publisher:V. Giard & E. Brière
Tags:France, history, non-fiction, Suffragette Movement

Ce livre, qui relate les efforts faits en France depuis plus d’un siècle pour faire entrer les femmes en possession de leurs droits politiques; envisage le vote des femmes à tous les points de vue, il réfute les objections qui y sont faites, démontre les avantages qui résulteront de sa mise en pratique et amène à conclure que les femmes—par la force du nombre de leurs bulletins de vote—pourront seules faire triompher la raison de la folie; donc, donner à la nation entière des garanties de sécurité et de bien-être.

Ce livre mettra ceux qui le liront, à même de bien connaître; et, en mesure de défendre, cette importante question du suffrage des femmes qu’il va falloir résoudre, pour pouvoir modifier la société et faire se réaliser la République. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Auclert, Hubertine

Author Image

Hubertine Auclert (1848-1914) was a French feminist and a leading campaigner for women's suffrage. She was born in Auvergne. When her father died at age 13 her mother placed her in a convent to live and study. She left the convent in 1869 and moved to Paris. After the death of Napoleon III, she joined the campaign to give women greater rights. In 1876, she founded the Société le droit des femmes (Rights of Women). She founded Le Citoyenne in 1881, a monthly magazine which argued stridently for women's right to vote. She began a tax revolt arguing women should not be subject to taxation if they had no say in its application.

She married one of her legal advisers, Antonin Lévrier and they moved to Algeria. Her husband died four years later and she returned to Paris but during her time in Algeria, she learned the plight of Algerian women and began to advocate for better rights for them as they were even worse off than French women. Considered one of the central figures of the French women's rights movement, Auclert continued her activism until her death in 1914, at age 65. (Women in World History: A Biographical Encyclopedia)
