Short biography
Juliette Adam was a French author, journalist and political salonniere. She was born in Picardy to a bourgeois family and wrote about her unhappy childhood before her 1852 first marriage to a physician named Alexis La Messine. She established her career as a serious writer with her rebuttal of the socialist Joseph Proudhon’s anti-feminist position with her "Idees antiproudhoniennes sur l’amour la femme et le mariage" (1858), written in defense of Daniel Stern -- pen name of Marie d’Agoult -- and George Sand. During her second marriage to the French senator Antoine Edmond Adam, Juliette created a salon of note in Paris, receiving men of letters, artists, and politicians such as the Italian nationalist Leon Gambetta. A champion of Republicanism, she started and edited the magazine La Nouvelle Revue. Her autobiography continues to be highly regarded today.
