This work is a social and political study of the network of women’s teacher training schools that were gradually established in France during the nineteenth century. The study investigates the academic and social environment found at the women’s normal schools and concludes with an assessment of how the secular women teachers adjusted to their professional duties after graduation from the normal schools.
