Slowly but Surely!
Finalement… The Guardian, oui, l’un des « gardiens » de la presse britannique, fait un article sur la présence féminine en Franc-maçonnerie ! Espérons que la BBC suive l’initiative et aussi la presse outre-Atlantique.

The first female freemason of modern times is Maria Deraismes (1828-1894) (pictured above). She was initiated on 14th January 1882 as an equal member into an otherwise all male French lodge- Les Libres Penseurs (the Free Thinkers) - meeting in Pecq, a small town outside Paris. She was from a prosperous middle class Parisian family and had been actively involved in promoting women’s rights and the cause of education for women.
