Dictionnaire des femmes célèbres de tous les temps et de tous les pays

£14.99

Product description

'histoire, le plus souvent, a été écrite par les hommes. Mais elle a souvent été faite par les femmes. Elles sont à l'origine de la plupart des religions du monde et les saintes de notre calendrier sont aussi nombreuses que leurs collègues mâles. De l'impératrice Théodora à Catherine de Russie, de Cléopâtre à Margaret Thatcher, en passant par la reine Victoria et Indira Gandhi, les femmes ont régné avec autorité, ruse, sagesse ou terreur. Héroïnes guerrières ou révolutionnaires, résistantes ou espionnes, pionnières ou inspiratrices, elles ont souvent changé le cours des choses. N'occupent-elles pas une place éminente dans les arts, les sciences, le sport et l'industrie ? Èves anciennes et modernes, écuyères et cantatrices, génies de la recherche et prix Nobel, déesses mères et suffragettes, elles forment un impressionnant cortège de figures historiques et légendaires sans lesquelles les hommes ne seraient pas ce qu'ils sont. Ce Dictionnaire, aussi amusant que sérieux, aussi étonnant que révélateur, rend enfin aux femmes leur place dans l'histoire.

History, most often, is written by men. But it has often been done by women. They are at the origin of most of the world's religions, and the saints of our calendar are as numerous as their male colleagues. From Empress Theodora to Catherine of Russia, from Cleopatra to Margaret Thatcher, to Queen Victoria and Indira Gandhi, women ruled with authority, cunning, wisdom or terror. Heroines warriors or revolutionaries, resistant or spies, pioneers or inspiring, they have often changed the course of things. Do not they occupy a prominent place in the arts, sciences, sports and industry? Ancient and modern women, riders and cantatrices, geniuses of research and Nobel prizes, mother goddesses and suffragettes, they form an impressive procession of historic and legendary figures without which men would not be what they are. This Dictionary, as amusing as it is serious, as surprising as it is revealing, finally gives women their place in history.

Pages are tanned but unmarked, some edge and cover wear.
