Olympe de Gouges was a lifelong champion for women’s rights and the abolition of slavery. An outspoken author and activist, inspired by ideas of the Enlightenment, she published her Declaration of the Rights of Women and of the Female Citizen in 1791. A friend of Danton, she was executed by guillotine in 1793, during the Reign of Terror, at age 45. In bringing her life story to the stage, Violaine Fournier and Isabelle Aboulker have resurrected an extraordinary woman.
