See the Film

To inspire you during this festive period, ambassador and spokesperson for the House Charlotte Casiraghi suggests a selection of books by female authors from different backgrounds whose writing expresses the voice of women. Imbued with emotion and lucidity, three novels tell the story of their emancipation while an essay explores the feminine mind in an intimate poetic meditation.
