Proposed by Florence Boué 
and the association “Les chemins Buissonniers”, this exhibition aims at highlighting few women, either scientists or artists, forgotten or unrecognized from our collective history. The objective is not to analyze these women’s destinies, but to offer you an overview of unknown stories, fighting, will, tenacity, ambition, passion… The aim is also to play a part in changing the women’s image, by regarding them not as submissive women but as women who had taken in charge their own destiny.
