Rediscovered in the last third of the 20th century, this heroine and martyr of feminism and the working people’s movement, Flora Tristán (1803-1844) was fully dedicated to the defence of these causes up until the end of a short life marked by personal dissidence. Brigitte Krulic shows that she entered into these battles through apostolic preaching, against wind and tide, beating her own path with a view to uniting the working people and keeping alive an ideal of absolute equality between women and men. Krulic (France), who lectures at the University of Paris-Nanterre and is the author of a biography of Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859), offers a new biography of Tristán that is particularly precise, empathetic and clear-sighted. She will talk about her book Flora Tristán and its subject with Doris Guillén.
