Olympe de Gouges embroidered bookmark
Dimensions 5.5 x 18 cm.
Olympe de Gouges is the pseudonym of Marie Gouze (1748-1793) French writer, political activist, defender of women's rights. One of her best known texts is the "Declaration of the Rights of Women and Citizens".
The quote that appears in the bookmark is the first sentence of the Declaration of the Rights of Women and Citizens: "La femme naît libre et demeure égale à l'homme en droits" (Woman is born free and remains equal to man in rights).
All the bookmarks are designed so that they do not exceed pocket books.
Together with the embroiderer Garbigalatea we have created this collection of embroidered bookmarks, each bookmark is a unique piece, stamped and embroidered by hand.
