Constance Salm
  • Princess Constance de Salm, née Constance de Théis in 1767, had made a name for herself by the age of 18, thanks to her poetry. Nicknamed, The Women’s Boileau she tasted success for her epistles and her plays. The French Revolution, having brought hope for change in women’s condition, wound up turning into a disappointment that caused her to become an ardent defender of feminism. She fought with her pen for women’s rights, including to education. Overshadowed by the brilliance of her contemporaries, George Sand and Germaine de Staël, it is time for this immensely talented woman of letters to once again be granted the recognition she deserves.
