Olympe de Gouges was born in 1748 in Paris, France and is best known for her significant role in women's rights. Olympe abhorred discrimination, oppression, and violence.
Olympe's bodacious voice was communicated through her writing. Olympe wrote pamphlets, posters, and plays that illustrated many of her concerns.
In 1791 Olympe wrote and published the "Declaration of the rights of Woman and the Citizen." In this she argued that women have the same rights as men and that all children should be treated fairly.
Marie- Olympe de Gouges was executed in 1793 by Guillotine but still inspired and inspires people.
