Spread the love

If one had to find a word to describe Hubertine Auclert, it would be that of pioneer. Because yes, she made her way. Pioneer and militant, the two terms refer to the military world, and her determination to continue the fight, against all odds, and often against all, almost brings her closer to soldiery discipline. Or that of a nun who does not lose her faith in anything. It was, moreover, her first vocation: she was nevertheless considered too mystical by the nuns, who did not want her.
