« For the women » - In Memoriam Simone Veil (1927-2017)

Barthold, Charles and Corvellec, Hervé LU (2018) In Gender, Work and Organization
Abstract

This In Memoriam presents the life of Simone Veil, an influential French politician, remembered for a law that made abortion legal in 1974. Simone Veil's contribution to the rights of women is featured as an instance of parrhesia (Foucault, 2011) that was able to establish a new regime of truth about the body, sexuality, and reproductive capacities of French women.
