Questions for Photo 4

1. Read the text on the third woman’s banner. This was one of the most famous slogans of the French Revolution, which began with the storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789. Why do you think the women selected that slogan for their banner?

Do you think the crowd of men surrounding the women was friendly or hostile? Why do you think so?

If you were one of the women, how would you have felt?
