Au fil de la plume d’une épistolière sous la Révolution française : Rosalie Jullien, femme, épouse et mère engagée (1779-1799)

Abstract : It was a long period of time that women were not mentioned in history books and the French Revolution, misogynist, was not the exception of such phenomenon. Yet it is possible to study their role, whether they took part to the revolutionary days, whether they made a speech in the club stands or whether they stayed at home holding the quill of family correspondence, to say the least. Rosalie Jullien is a bourgeoise of the end of the 18th century who, through her prolix quill, made her epistolary exchanges the place of writing a daily life punctuated by revolutionary events. Residing in Paris, she acts as a witness, columnist and journalist for correspondents who are none other than her husband and her sons. In her letters, private and public meet, family life merges with political life at the end of the 18th century, while, through a constantly renewed writing, this woman, mother and wife of revolutionaries, echoes of an insatiable interest in state affairs. This study aims to account for the status of this letter-writer who makes her correspondence a forum in which to develop sometimes radical political ideas, within the framework of an intimate trade where many subjects of concern follow one another, over an inexhaustible quill, between maternal advice, moral lessons and often relevant analyzes of the course of the political life of her time.
