Challenges many assumptions about gender and politics in the French Revolution. Offers an insightful analysis of the ways the Revolution radically redefined the family and its internal dynamics. Shows how revolutionary politics and laws brought about a social revolution within households and created space for thousands of French women and men to re-imagine their most intimate relationships. Families negotiated new social practices, including divorce, the reduction of paternal authority, egalitarian inheritance for sons and daughters alike, and the granting of civil rights to illegitimate children. New civil laws and gender politics offered many women unexpected opportunities to gain power, property, or independence. Illustrations.
