Introduce your students to a crucial point in French history: the Second World War! We offer two workshops displaying two perspectives on this fundamental period: "The women in the French Resistance" and "Everyday life during the war in France."

Topics covered include: the situation of women in France before the WW2; the resistant movement in France and the commitment of women: why they took part in the resistance movement, what their missions were and what risks they encountered.

Finally activities focusing on the movie "Les femmes de l'ombre" give students the opportunity to further their understanding of the issue.
