Abstract/Artist Statement

Abstract: The French Revolution led to an explosion of women of all social classes taking part in the political uprising of their nation and demanding social change. Women joined political clubs, wrote articles, books and plays to get their message out there regardless of class. Radical women were not the only ones that were making their mark, anti-Revolutionary women were doing their best to keep the peace and maintain the status quo as well as keeping their children and husbands home.

Artist Statement: I chose to research this project because I have been in love with the play Les Misérables by Victor Hugo. I wanted to research more of what brought of the feelings of angst and fear I saw in the play. I also have a passion for European history that I am just starting to delve into and what better way to start learning more than with the French Revolution.
