Women played an active role in the revolution, both as individuals and as members of such female organizations as the Societe des Citoyennes Republicaines Revolutionnaires and Societe des Republicaines Revolutionnaires. Many of these women were motivated, at least in part, by a desire to create a society that would offer political and civil rights to women, a cause promoted by female organizations in the opening phases of the Revolution. When the Jacobins seized control, they suppressed this movement. The first step was the decree offered here, which abolished "les clubs & societes populaires de femmes" in October 1793. Afterwards, their leaders were arrested and the movement was crushed. About a decade later the Napoleonic Code would cement the second-class status of French women.
