The Women’s Place in the Protection of Nature in France (1850’s-1940’s)
The aim of this survey is to explain the women’s place in the emergence of the naturalistic movement of the conservation of nature in France. The study is about French learned societies (Société d’acclimatation, Ligue pour la protection des oiseaux), for 1850’s to WWII. If women are initially absent of the naturalistic movement of the conservation, they appear in speeches against feather hat fashion which lock them inside a traditional “feminine nature”. Progressively, from 1920’s, more women act in the naturalistic movement of conservation. Then this movement becomes more militant, more ethical, and more efficient.
