I was really excited to see the grave of Hubertine Auclert, a French feminist and suffragette! I have much to say about women/girls and the fact that of all people in the world no group is more discriminated against and abused than half of the world’s population- the female gender. But that’s for another day and another blog.

Hubertine Auclert (April 10, 1848 – August 4, 1914) was a militant anticlerical. While the main focus of the French feminist movement was directed towards changes to the laws, Auclert pushed further, demanding that women be given the right to run for public office, claiming that the unfair laws would never have been passed had the views of female legislators been heard. In 1876 she founded the Société le droit des femmes (The Rights of Women) that supported women’s suffrage and in 1883, the organization formally changed its name to the Société le suffrage des femmes (Women’s Suffrage Society). Beginning in 1880, Auclert launched a tax revolt, arguing that without representation women should not be subjected to taxation. In 1884, the French government finally legalized divorce but Auclert denounced it because of the law’s blatant bias against women that still did not allow a woman to keep her wages. Auclert proposed the then radical idea that there should be a marriage contract between spouses with separation of property.
In 1908 married women in France were finally given control over their own salaries but the 60-year-old Auclert continued her push for total equality. That year, she symbolically smashed a ballot box during municipal elections in Paris and in 1910 she and Marguerite Durand defied authorities and presented themselves as candidates in the elections for members of the legislative assembly.
Considered one of the central figures in the history of the French women’s rights movement, Hubertine Auclert continued her activism until her death in 1914 at age 65.
