Abstract

Commemorative ceremonies and monuments, both literary (such as Maurice Genevoix's 1924 novel 'La Joie)' and in villages throughout postwar France, were part of widespread official and unofficial efforts to reassert familiar gender roles and relationships disrupted during World War I. Men as well as women were reminded of their appropriate roles in the family and community.
