Brigitte Krulic in conversation with Doris Guillén

All about Flora Tristán

Arequipa 2022, 

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.
