Flora Tristan

Standard Name: Tristan, Flora
Birth Name: Flora Célestine Thérèse Henriette Tristan Moscoso
Married Name: Flora Chazal
French writer FT refused to limit herself to feminine genres, and her writing enjoyed limited success during her lifetime. She did, however, gain a degree of notoriety through the drama of her life, which culminated in her husband's attempt to murder her. FT 's political pamphlets and travel narratives, published in Paris, promote her views regarding the oppression of women and the working classes, advocate reform, and advance early feminist theory. Her Promenades dans Londres analyses early Victorian British parlimentary and social systems in order to compare them with those of France.
