"Madame Roland," Female Politician
She became famous under the name “Madame Roland.” And yet, she was much more than the wife of the famous Girondin Jean-Marie Roland de la Platière. When she lived in this building, she was still called Manon Phlipon. It was in her home, after her marriage, where Deputy Brissot’s friends would gather: the “Brissotins” or the “Girondins” were the main political group at the beginning of the Republic, from autumn 1792 to spring 1793. Madame Roland thus became a high-profile female politician.
