March is Women’s History Month. During this month, we celebrate the efforts and accomplishments of women. One such woman is Julie-Victoire Daubié.
Born in France in 1824, Daubié grew to adulthood frustrated by the constraints limiting women’s roles in society. An essay she wrote about the opportunities denied to women during that era earned her a spot in a baccalaureate program. In 1861, she became the first woman to graduate from a French university.
Julie-Victoire Daubié spent her adult life engaged in activism focused on gender equality. March 26 is the 195th anniversary of her birth.
