Part of the Genders and Sexualities in History book series (GSX)

About this book


A repositioning of French women's struggle for suffrage within the distinct cultural landscape of the masculine honour system. Whether activists demanded admission to the popular ritual of the duel or publicly shamed men for their extramarital sexual behaviour, they appropriated extralegal honour codes to enact new civic and familial identities.
