Elisabeth Badinter at the Institut francais, 1989

Elisabeth Badinter at the Institut francais, 1989

In 1989, as the English translation of her book 'L'Un est l'autre' was published for the first time, French author Elisabeth Badinter came to the French Institute in London to discuss her views on feminism.

Elisabeth Badinter is a writer, historian and professor of philosophy at the École Polytechnique in Paris. For Elisabeth Badinter, “the” current French feminism is monolithic, essentialist and anti-men. Influenced by some American radical theorists, it victimizes women, demonizes male sexuality and has managed to impose a new moral order. In 'L'un est l'autre', she dives into the relationships between men and women.
