A Conversation with Lindsey Tramuta: “The New Parisienne: The Women & Ideas Shaping Paris”
LIVE on Zoom
Wednesday, July 29th at 12pm EST / 18h Paris

Paris-based journalist and author Lindsey Tramuta will discuss her recently published book, “The New Parisienne: The Women & Ideas Shaping Paris”. The book explores the impact that the women of Paris have had on the rapidly evolving culture of their city. She features women such as Leïla Slimani, Lauren Bastide, and Mayor Anne Hidalgo. The book lifts the veil on the mythologized Parisian woman, revealing Paris as a blossoming cultural center of feminine power.

FHS Board member and YPC Co-Chairman Maureen Nash will lead the conversation.
