This book explores the lives of French women under the Consulate (1799-1804) and the Empire. He considers Napoleon's conception of women and scrutinizes the emperor's contribution to the Civil Code, as well as the place of women in French society and girls' education. Drawing from memoirs and correspondence, Boudon explores how women in the Empire perceived this period of reforms, privation of freedoms, and wars. [Amazon]
