About the event

Join us for our monthly book club and a discussion on The New Parisienne: The Women & Ideas Shaping Paris. The New Parisienne focuses on one of the city’s most dynamic features: its women. Lifting the veil on the mythologized Parisian woman—white, lithe, ever fashionable—Lindsey Tramuta demystifies this oversimplified archetype and recasts the women of Paris as they truly are, in all their complexity. Featuring more than 40 activists, creators, educators, visionaries, and disruptors—such as Leïla Slimani, Lauren Bastide, Sarah Ourahmoune, and Mayor Anne Hidalgo—the book reveals Paris as a blossoming cultural center of feminine power. The New Parisienne showcases “Parisianness” in all its multiplicity, highlighting those who are bucking tradition, making names for themselves, and transforming the city.
