An Evening with Sophie Perinot

The Revolution was female. Sophie Perinot, one of 6 bestselling and award-winning authors behind RIBBONS OF SCARLET: A Novel of the French Revolution’s Women, speaks on the unforgettable women at the book’s center: a proponent of democracy and equal rights for women, a leader of the march on Versailles, a devote princess loyal to her brother the doomed French King, a politician’s wife with more political savvy than her husband, a pike-wielding revolutionary, an assassin, and a famous beauty who hopes to stop the Terror by influencing Robespierre. These women are part of a pattern of forgotten females in history, and Perinot suggests such omissions mistakenly cause us to think of women’s progress as linear.
