More like 45 starsWomen s roles in revolution has interested me ever since I studied Modern European history at uni so I was very excited when I found this book I was even excited when I discovered it covered some territory I wasn t all that familiar withThis accessible bio covers the lives of six women from all classes who lived and were politically active or as active as women were allowed to be during the French Revolution and Napoleonic era It refreshingly tells the other side of the story essentially how the various political ideologies and stages of this tumultuous time in France changed women s influence and positions in society And while that may sound somewhat dry it wasn t at all I found it very readable and at times almost gossipy my favourite type of bio although that s not to say it wasn t well researched with lots of notes references glossaries and gorgeous colour plates Be warned though it probably pays to know your French Rev basics before reading as what the men did is mainly covered in reference to the womenMost enjoyable as was reading it with my good friend Kim
