Abstract

The book chapter analyzes the parliamentary debates on women's suffrage in France during the interwar period. It argues that the rejection of women's right to vote after World War I was a reflection of the fear of women in politics. The chapter analyzes  the failure of the suffrage reform in the period between the wars in the light of parliamentary deliberations, which reflects the great debates in French society at the time. This analysis allows us to understand the fear reflex in the political life. On the particular issue of greater involvement of women in politics, the French state has oscillated since the French Revolution between a reluctance that was in the interwar period still deeply rooted and the adoption of still timid practices of progressive inclusion. The construction of political equality between men and women indeed continued to generate heated discussions and contradictory feelings after World War I.
