Hubertine Auclert
Hubertine Auclert (10 April 1848 – 4 August 1914) was a leading French feminist and a campaigner for women's suffrage. Speaking at the Socialist Workers' Congress in 1879, she made passionate pleas for women's rights, arguing that women needed their economic independence. Moving to Algeria in 1888, she studied and recorded the daily lives of Arab women, and advocated for their rights.Photograph credit: Agence Rol; restored by Adam Cuerden
