On the occasion of the 26th European Heritage Days and the 1st Women’s Heritage Day, the Women’s Rights Committee is organising an exhibition entitled “Remarkable Women in Monegasque History” at the Princess Grace Rose Garden.

As part of the “Women and Heritage” theme, the Committee is thus highlighting exceptional women who have helped to change women’s place in society and promote equality.

This exhibition was designed as an educational tool and enables visitors to discover, or rediscover, 15 women who are no longer with us but have made their mark on the Principality (such as the Princesses Louise-Hippolyte and Charlotte, and Anne-Marie Campora), or who have been connected with Monaco in various fields (including Colette, Josephine Baker, Suzanne Lenglen, and others.)

“The aim is to enable everyone to project themselves into a variety of inspiring role models by presenting women who are exemplary, but sometimes little known,” stated Céline Cottalorda, Women’s Rights Officer.

Each of these remarkable women can be identified by a QR code, which is linked to detailed biographical information.

The exhibition is based on an original idea by the “She Can He Can” association and Adrien Rébaudo, in association with the Department of Cultural Affairs, the Archives of the Prince’s Palace and Monaco City Hall.

“Remarkable Women in Monegasque History” is on display from 26 September to 15 October 2021 at the Princess Grace Rose Garden.
