This chapter studies Kavanagh's perspectives on some of the women she discusses in Woman in France during the Eighteenth Century, noting that her main purpose was a celebration of women and of the presence of women in history. It shows that Kavanagh focuses primarily on women of privilege, whose position gave them immense social influence and power over men, and who helped change the course of eighteenth-century France. The chapter determines that Woman in France during the Eighteenth Century serves as an important contribution to women's history, since it succeeds in drawing attention to the experiences and lives of women during that period.

Keywords:   women's history, women of privilege, social influence, eighteenth-century France
