The Revolutionists

The Revolutionists

Illustration of a woman with her hair piled on her head with the text The Revolutionists.

Four women—a writer, an assassin, a queen and a rebel— are caught in the political upheaval of Paris, 1793. French feminism and revolutionary fervor collide in this imagination-fueled, girl-powered comedy. Leap headfirst inside the creative mind of Olympe De Gouges as she authors a story she hopes will save her country and ensure equality for all women. And ask yourself: Is it possible to hold onto your ideals, even as you lose your head?
