The “Dictionnaire universel des créatrices” is born from the desire to highlight the women’s creativity across the world and throughout history, and to make visible their contributions to civilization.
Conceived as a unique contribution to world cultural heritage, it was made possible by more that 4 decades of commitment and work in France and many other countries, which helped revive a genealogy which up until now has been hidden from memory.
The dictionary consists of 3 volumes containing 40 centuries of creativity of women across the world in all areas : human history, arts, culture, politics, science etc…

Will be present to the event :
- the "Créatrices" of the Dictionary :
Antoinette Fouque, Mireille Calle Gruber, Béatrice Didier
- Ms Sonia Rykiel
- Ms Edith Cresson, Ms Nicole Ameline, Ms Marie-Laure Bernadac.
