G
Gacon-Dufour, Marie-Armande Jeanne d'Humières ( 1753-1835). Novelist, polemicist, agronomist, and expert on court life. Scholars remain uninformed about this versatile writer, known only to have been born in Paris and to have died in Brie-Comte-Robert. Her published works include novels* such as Les Dangers de la coquetterie ( 1788), La Femme grenadier ( 1801), and L'Héroïne moldave ( 1818), with two editions of her first printed novel, L'Homme errant fixé par la raison, ou Lettres de Célidor et du marquis de Tobers ( 1787, 1803). Her political pamphlets and books confront the issue of a woman's right to education* ( Contre le projet de loi de S*** M***, portant défense d'apprendre à lite aux femmes, par une femme qui ne se pique pas d'être femme de lettres [ 1801] and De la nécessité de l'instruction pour les femmes [ 18051). The pamphlet Mimoire pour le sexe féminin contre le sexe masculin ( 1787) accuses men, especially the chevalier de Feucher, of corrupting society and of blaming women for its decline. She edited the correspondence of Mme de Châteauroux* ( 1717- 1744) and wrote tales of the courts of Catherine de Medici* and Louis XIV. Finally, she published numerous manuals detailing the running of the household, perfume and soap-making, and advice on maintaining health. Sarah Harrell DeSmet
