For International Women’s Rights Weekend (March 7-8, 2015), we take you to the museums in Paris celebrating women for the weekend.

Why? Well, mostly because special events for Women’s rights day are usually a bit irrelevant and also because the United Nation theme for International Women’s Day 2015 is “Empowering Women, Empowering Humanity: Picture it!“. So let’s picture it.

Exclusive visits and discoveries on women through history and their influence on the city of Paris, from the Age of Enlightenment to today. Here’s our selection.
