Feminists: Suzanne Voilquin

Suzanne Voilquin (1801-1877) was a legendary French journalist, author, midwife, women’s rights activist and world traveller. She was a leader in the early Feminist movement in France and is perhaps best known for her work as writer and editor for the first French working-class feminist newspaper. She also lived through a plague and quarantine that feels particularly worth noting at this time.
