French Resistance Fighter, one of the six women awarded the title of 'Compagnon de la Libération' (English: Companion of the Liberation) for her heroism in World War II.

Prior to the war, she created a feminist journal, Le Problème Sexuel (The Sexual Problem), in which she campaigned for the freedom of contraception and abortion.

During the war, she was detained and released once by the French police, then she was arrested by the Gestapo and transferred to Fresnes Prison, where she was tortured. She then committed suicide by hanging on 31 May 1943.
