Women and the French Revolution

Download to read offline

http://www.tomrichey.net

The political upheavals of the French Revolution, along with the liberal philosophy of the Enlightenment, provided an atmosphere where women began to advocate for political equality more vocally than they ever had before. While the French Revolution was not a feminist revolution, it gave birth to the modern feminist movement through the writings and actions of Olympe de Gouges, Mary Wollstonecraft, and Charlotte Corday.

  40. The heroic Charlotte la Cordé, upon her trial, at the bar of the revolutionary tribunal of Paris, July 17, 1793 For having rid the world of that monster of Atheism and Murder, the Regicide Marat, whom she stabbed in a bath, where he had retired on account of a Leprosy, with which Heaven had begun the punishment of his Crimes. "The noble enthusiasm with which this woman met the charge, & the elevated disdain with which she treated the self-created Tribunal, struck the whole assembly with terror & astonishment.
  41. “Wretches – I did not expect to appear before you – I always thought that I should be delivered up to the outrage of the people, torn in pieces, and that my head, stuck on top of a pike, would have preceded Marat on his state bed, to serve as a rallying point to Frenchmen, if there still are any worthy of that name. -- But happen what will, if I have the honours of the guillotine, and my clay-cold remains are buried, they will soon have conferred upon them the honours of the Pantheon; and my memory will be more honored in France than that of Judith in Bethulia.”
