Eventually, a few women were able to meet with Louis. He agreed to give them some bread and promised more in the future. He went back to Paris with them.
In 1792, the monarchy was abolished. Louis and his wife Marie Antoinette were imprisoned.
Even though they were not considered citizens and could not vote, own property, or hold a public office, women were pretty influential during the revolution. They wrote and discussed the revolution, formed revolutionary groups, and fought for women's rights.
The Society of Republican Revolutionary Women was a very influential group of women who fought for the revolution and for women's rights.
In 1793, Louis and Marie Antoinette were executed.
Ms. Frizzle, at my old school we were never allowed to watch an execution!
