5/18/2015 Les Braves Françaises!
A very moving exhibit on the gates of the Hotel de Ville showcases some of the brave Françaises (French women) who fought against the tyranny and injustice of the Nazis during WWII. Some survived to continue the fight, others paid with their lives for their courage. (I'm in Paris for my Arts & Pleasures Tour starting this week, so this question comes direct from the Mother Ship) Two centuries earlier, Olympe de Gouges, the woman honored by a small square and this plaque (3rd arr.) also fought against tyranny and injustice, insisting on rights for women, and she also gave her life for her cause - she was executed during the Reign of Terror in the French Revolution. With a tradition of heroic women, when did France give women the right to vote?
