A reassessment of the Third Republic as the first long-term successful French experiment with a democratic republic. Born of violent revolution against Church, monarchy, and aristocracy, it was fraught with contradictions between the universalism of human rights and the practical need to deny certain categories of people the rights of citizenship.

Drawing together prominent scholars in French gender history, this volume explores how historians have come to view this period in light of new theoretical developments since the 1980s.
