Citoyennes : Women and the Ideal of Citizenship in Eighteenth-Century France Paperback / softback
by Annie Smart
In Citoyennes, Annie Smart argues that many revolutionary and pre-revolutionary works constructed a civic identity for women and portrayed the home as a site for both civic virtue and private subjectivity.
This interdisciplinary study offers a fresh interpretation of the role of women and the home in eighteenth-century France, and goes a long way to filling a gaping home in the contemporary literature on the subject.
