Who was olympe de gouges? What was her contribution in revolutionary France

Olympe de Gouges was politically active in revolutionary France. She protested against the Constitution and the Declaration of Rights of Man and Citizen because they did not even give basic political rights to women.

Thus, in 1791, she wrote a Declaration of the Rights of Woman and Citizen. In 1793, Olympe de Gouges criticised the Jacobin government for forcibly closing down women’s clubs. She was later charged with treason and executed.
