Christine Bard: A Political History of Skirts and Pants

Christine Bard is a visiting professor at the Institute of French Studies, NYU, and professor of History at the Université d’Angers, where she holds one of the very few chairs in France in the history of women, gender and feminism.

Her scholarship encompasses works on: feminism, including Les filles de Marianne : Histoire des féminismes 1914-1940 (Fayard, 1995) and Dictionnaire des féministes : France, 18e-21e siècle (co-edited with S. Chaperon, PUF, 2017); clothing and gender, including Une histoire politique du pantalon (Le Seuil, 2010); cross-dressing; and anti-feminist discourse with Un siècle d’antiféminisme (Fayard, 1999). She plays a key role in the preservation of feminist historical sources and founded the association Archives du féminisme.
