(p.141) Conclusion “In Silence and in Shadow”
Writing the Revolution

Lindsay A. H. Parker

Oxford University Press

The conclusion asks whether Rosalie had a Revolution. As she excluded the Revolution from her writing, she seems to have erased the event from her life as if it had never happened. This chapter argues, however, that she continued to see women as political. As she discussed family life and women’s roles, she invested mothers with her hope that they would keep republican virtues alive in the privacy of their homes, in preparation for another, better revolution. Jules, however, fully embraced the ideal of domesticity that separated women from politics and the public. The lives of Rosalie’s daughter and granddaughter were therefore much different than she would have imagined.

Keywords:   Domesticity, Bourgeoisie, Republicanism
