The rebel women of sport
View date


"A female Olympiad would be impractical, uninteresting, unattractive and incorrect. In my opinion, the true Olympic hero is the individual adult male", said Pierre de Coubertin, father of the modern Olympic Games, in 1912.

At a time when society did not allow women having a place in the sporting world, several "incorrect" feminist figures stood out as pioneers.

Take a guided tour and discover the struggles waged by feminists over the centuries to enable women to practice sport freely, and the great athletes erased from history, in a convivial atmosphere of exchange and debate.

This guided tour in the heart of Paris reminds us that the road to equality is long and full of obstacles, but it is also rich in successes and moments of inspiration.


The guiding company highlights women through art, history and culture, with guided feminist tours open to all. Feminists in the city is sponsored by Claudine Monteil, historian, honorary French diplomat, author and close friend of Simone de Beauvoir.
