In addition to these bold writings, her defense of the king was one of the factors leading to her execution. An influential figure, one of her suggestions early in the Revolution, to have a voluntary, patriotic tax, was adopted by the National Convention in 1789. The Women’s March on Versailles is but one example of feminist militant activism during the French Revolution. Women were, nonetheless, “denied political rights of ‘active citizenship’ and democratic citizenship .” One of the big locations for counter-revolutionary insurgency was the region known as the Vendée.

The attack on the Bastille showed how popular political intervention could change the course of events. In October 1789 the Revolution seemed to hang in the balance once again. In the midst of a continuing shortage of bread, rumors circulated that the royal guards at Versailles, the palace where the King and his family resided, had trampled on the revolutionary colors and plotted counterrevolution. In response, a crowd of women in Paris gathered to march to Versailles to demand an accounting from the King. They trudged the twelve miles from Paris in the rain, arriving soaked and tired.

Before 1789 such ideas fell on deaf ears; the issue of women’s rights, unlike the rights of Protestants, Jews, and blacks, did not lead to essay contests, official commissions, or Enlightenment-inspired clubs under the monarchy. In part, this lack of interest followed from the fact that women were not considered a persecuted group like Calvinists, Jews, or slaves.

Especially for women living in rural areas of France, the demise of the Catholic Church meant a loss of normalcy. For instance, the ringing of Church bells resonating through the town called people to confession and symbolised unity for the community. With the onset of the dechristianisation campaign, the Republic silenced these bells and sought simultaneously to silence the religious fervor of the majority Catholic population.

Even before the United States declared its independence in the summer of 1776, slavery had become an issue in the war. In November of 1775 the royal governor of Virginia, the Earl of Dunmore, issued a proclamation in which he offered freedom to enslaved people who would support and fight for the British. Dunmore’s hope of a slave insurrection did not materialize, but about one to two thousand black Virginians fled to the British side. The fact that this occurred in Virginia—home then to the largest enslaved population in what would become the United States—highlights some of the challenges of slavery in Revolution-era America.

Despite the social conservatives’ agenda, as the decade progressed, societal emphases on virginity and marriage were slowly replaced by a celebration of single life and sexual exploration. Hugh Hefner put out a racy new magazine calledPlayboythat promoted bachelorhood and the swinging single life style. Helen Gurley Brown’s bookSex and the Single Girlchampioned career women and open sexuality, effectively destroying the notion of the “old maid.” In response to conservative attacks on the Pill, the developers of the Pill, John Rock and Gregory Pincus, argued that technology does not determine behavior. Despite the veneer of a chaste society and socially conservative morality, there was clinical research to back up their views. Studies have shown that unmarried women were having sex prior to the advent of the Pill.

One of its leaders, Claire Lacombe, published a pamphlet defending the club.

Eventually, Galileo confesses to making the Copernicus case, the fact that Copernicus believed that the sun was the center of the universe, too strong and offered to disprove the theory of the heliocentric system. Pope Urban VII was not amused by Galileo’s proposition, and declared that Galileo was to be imprisoned endlessly. He remained under house arrest, even with his many medical complications and declining health, until his death in 1642. It was not until 1983, when the pope at the time, Pope John Paul II, finally gave in to investigate the truth to Galileo’s theory. Finally, in 1992, it was finally accepted by the Church, more specifically the Vatican, that Galileo Galilei and Nicolaus Copernicus’ theory of the heliocentric theory was right. One reason was that scientific ideas contradicted with Church teachings.

As Olwen Hufton argues, these women began to see themselves as the “defenders of the faith”. They took it upon themselves to protect the Church from what they saw as a heretical change to their faith, enforced by revolutionaries. Most of these outwardly activist women were punished for their militancy. The kind of punishment received during the Revolution included public denouncement, arrest, execution, or exile. Théroigne de Méricourt was arrested, publicly flogged and then spent the rest of her life sentenced to an insane asylum.

In February 1791 one of the leading newspapers responded explicitly to Condorcet’s article demanding equal political rights for women. The editor, Louis-Marie Prudhomme, restated the view, commonly attributed to Rousseau, that nature determined different but complementary roles for men and women. During the discussion of a new constitution in April 1793, the issue of women’s rights came up once again. The spokesman for the constitutional committee restated the arguments against equal rights for women, but he admitted that deputies had begun to speak out in favor of women’s rights.

Included in these numbers were, of course, the deaths of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. Although all social classes and professions were targeted, the death toll was especially high for both clergy and aristocrats. The numbers of those killed and taken into custody were probably even higher as the documented numbers don’t include people killed by vigilantes and other self-proclaimed representatives of the Republic. Violence, executions, mutilations, and torture have long been a part of early modern European history.
