The New Parisienne: The Women & Ideas Shaping Paris

The New Parisienne: The Women & Ideas Shaping Paris
Press release

Frustrated with the countless media stories about how French women do everything, from eat to powder their noses to age beautifully, Lindsey Tramuta decided to write The New Parisienne: The Women & Ideas Shaping Paris to demystify outdated and oversimplified stereotypes, highlighting the women of Paris as they truly are, in all their complexity. As she writes: “this book is about recasting the image of how one of the most commodified and romanticized groups of women is actually living today, how she finds happiness and seeks fulfillment, how she weathers adversity and the indignities that may be thrust upon her, how she’s contributing to the city in her own way—one dish, film, boxing match, art exhibit, podcast episode, and jewelry collection at a time.

Revealing Paris as a blossoming cultural center of feminine power, The New Parisienne features interviews with more than 40 inspirational women such as Anne Hidlago (the first female mayor of Paris), Kat Borlongan (the director of La French Tech) or with Lauren Bastide (the creator and host of La Poudre podcast).

Book available from July 7, 2020 (also as an e-book).
