CultureSecrets invites you to an exceptional evening at the Carnavalet Museum as part of the Paris Musées OFF event! Paris Musées and CultureSecrets are pleased to announce their new collaboration, to inaugurate the launch of the exhibition 'Parisiennes, citoyennes', which takes us on an ambitious historical journey, from the French Revolution to the law on parity, in the footsteps of the struggles that women have led in Paris for their emancipation. Discover the feminist artistic avant-garde, a demanding and explosive programme that will present: music and DJ sets, performances and dance, by renowned and talented artists committed to the contemporary feminist struggle.
The title of the exhibition, "Parisiennes citoyennes", evokes images of struggle, demonstrations and commitment. It takes us on an ambitious historical journey, from the French Revolution to the achievement of parity in politics, in search of the traces of women's struggles for emancipation.
The entire artistic programme of the evening is based on this theme. Playful and participatory activities aim to raise awareness and contextualise the Parisian feminist movements since the 18th century!
For the first time, the Carnavalet Museum presents a synthesis of the history and memory of the struggle for women's emancipation, focusing on the history of feminism in Paris. Alongside certain key figures, from Olympe de Gouges to Gisèle Halimi, a large place is given to lesser-known or anonymous Parisian women: revolutionary citizens of 1789, 1830, 1848, Communards, suffragettes, pacifists, resistance fighters, political or trade union women, feminist activists, committed artists and intellectuals, striking workers, immigrant women's groups,...
