Storyboard Text

  • During September of 1793 the conservative women of France were fighting what was known as the Cockade Wars. They fought for the right to wear the tricolor cockade in public without being assaulted.
  • Sisters of the Society of Revolutionary Republican Women, listen now! We must fight for our right to proudly wear these signs of liberty!
  • They even went to a meeting of Jacobins to assert their rights. The Jacobins didn't exactly disagree, but their response was essentially, "If you don't like how you're treated, don't wear the cockade." That wasn't the point though as the women were trying to point out how much worse they were being treated than men.
  • This was one of many events that lead to public demonstrations and the attempted formation of more women's groups similar to the Society of Revolutionary Republican Women.
