Feminism’s and Abolitionism’s First Tragic Victim: Olympe de Gouges

This book is about Olympe de Gouges
In the gripping narrative, "Feminism’s and Abolitionism’s First Tragic Victim: Olympe de Gouges," readers are introduced to one of the most influential yet overlooked figures of the 18th century. Olympe de Gouges, a pioneering French playwright and political activist, fearlessly championed the causes of gender equality, racial justice, and criminal justice reform. Set against the tumultuous backdrop of the French Revolution's "Reign of Terror," this book delves into the life and work of de Gouges, who utilized her sharp pen and unwavering conviction to advocate for the rights of women, blacks, and children. Her compelling arguments for social equality made her a target during one of history’s most oppressive eras, leading to her untimely death by guillotine. This thought-provoking book, published on June 14, 2022, is a must-read for college students and scholars interested in the intersections of feminism, abolitionism, and historical social justice movements. It challenges readers to reflect on the enduring impact of de Gouges’s ideas and the price she paid for her ahead-of-her-time convictions.
