Why are women so overlooked in France’s history?

This week’s podcast episode features Heidi Evans, a British woman who noticed a serious problem with the typical Paris tours…. they never really seem to feature stories about women.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, we’ve all heard about Napoleon, Louis XIV, and all the rest of the grands hommes. But what about the women?

Heidi created Women of Paris to fill that gap in the market and now offers three different tours where she points out the interesting female faces of history who’ve been so overlooked.

How did Collette turn heads at the Comedie Francaise? What’s this “X-rated fact” about Marie Antoinette? And what’s all this about a mission to rename Paris Metro stations?

Don’t have 30 minutes to listen? I feel you. Why not watch five minutes of Heidi instead, when she joined The Earful for the 1st day of Christmas in the 1st arrondissement. That’s her below with host Oliver Gee.
