Pelletier, a committed feminist and socialist, was the first woman to remove the barriers to women entering the French psychiatric profession, successfully passing the examination for the l'internat des hôpitaux psychiatriques in 1903. Her involvement in La Société d'Anthropologie de Paris and the Institut Général de Psychologie provided a forum for her interest in psychology, both normal and abnormal. She turned increasingly to sociological explanations for mental illness, unwilling to accept the determinism inherent in degeneration theory.

Both were committed feminists, but whereas Pelletier threw her energies into feminist and socialist campaigns, Pascal .

Both were committed feminists, but whereas Pelletier threw her energies into feminist and socialist campaigns, Pascal, mindful of her professional standing, avoided direct feminist campaigning, seeking to improve the treatment of women psychiatric patients and to advance the cause of women in psychiatry. An analysis of their relationship with the media throws a telling light on French cultural norms, revealing how an emphasis on domestic ideology could be coupled with admiration for women ‘firsts’ in the professions. A prolific writer and pamphleteer, Pelletier corresponded with many of the leading feminists and socialists of her day, attended feminist and socialist conferences, and visited post revolutionary Russia. Her advocacy of contraception and the right to abortion posed a challenge to the establishment.

This is a biographical study of one of the most remarkable women in early 20th-century France - Madeleine Pelletier. Her career as a practising doctor, psychiatrist and birth-control advocate also encompassed a commitment to the socialist and feminist cause. Throughout her life she challenged the values of male-dominated society, in the areas of politics, anthropology, psychiatry, sexuality and contraception. A prolific writer and pamphleteer, Pelletier corresponded with most of the leading feminists and socialists of her day, making frequent visits to international feminist conferences including post-revolutionary Russia. This biography focuses on her rise within the French Socialist party, on her efforts to make women's suffrage a socialist priority, and on the circle of feminists whom she worked and corresponded. Gordon's research has uncovered much hitherto unstudied material, including an unpublished memoir, many letters and police records. The result is a portrait of a woman whose life and feminist analysis anticipates that of late 20th-century feminists.
