Women in civic life

Thanks in part to their involvement in the Resistance during the Occupation, the French women won the right to vote and stand for election on April 21, 1944. After the Liberation, women occupied their place in allied troops, had access to elective magistracies, and entered the political sphere. Four women jurors sit on the Court of Justice in Paris, women have become mayor, and the Union des femmes françaises, the result of the Women’s Committees of the Resistance, is holding its first major meeting. In Paris, images of a group of women soldiers, of the four women jurors of the Court of Justice. In a city hall, a woman mayor pronounces her first marriage. Images of the "first big meeting" of the Union des femmes françaises, extracts of the speeches of Claudine MICHAUT, "of the steering committee"; and of Marie BELL, of the French Comedy.
