The author discusses the surprising absence of French women in the ranks of top international athletes. She describes the relatively late development of women’s rights in France and discusses the history of sports, the Olympics, the role of physical education in schools, and briefly describes how a small number of French women did succeed. These women are Suzanne Lenglen, Isabelle Autissier, Surya Bonaly, Linda Ferga, Félicia Ballanger, Virginie Heriot, Micheline Ostermeyer, Catherine Fleury, Alain Jarbel, and Gertrude Ederlé.
