Married Female Characters of French Women Authors

Presiding Officer: 
Francis Mathieu, Southwestern University

French women authors have reflected a range of responses to such social expectations through their married heroines, by imagining alternative life choices, subverting oppressive societal norms, and disrupting paradigms.
