Which French Revolutionary Woman Are You?

You got: You are Olympe De Gouges

You are a bad ass feminist artist. You write plays about women. You write manifestos for women. Heck, you even write the famous last words for women enemies of the state. And if a man ever tries to whoo you for your incredible communication skills? You'll just send him packing because you don't need a man inhibiting your artistic freedom. Your only downfall: all that unbounded creative inspiration leaves you a little excitable and over the top. But hey, what's life without a little drama?

You got: You are Charlotte Corday

You are a bad ass. You're the baddest ass of all. You are so bad you became an assassin. And your fiercely patriotic soul always points you in the direction of morality, even if it means killing a naked man in the tub. For the record, that guy chopped a ton of other people's heads off and he totally had it coming. Your only downfall? Your seriousness and laser point focus means that you scare most of the men in your life and subsequently have never been kissed. But please, you're a feminist. Who needs kisses from members of the patriarchy anyway?

You got: You are Marianne

You are a bad ass black woman. You are Haitian and you are proud. More than that, you are fiercely free and fight for the independence of all your Haitian brothers and sisters. You're smart, you're classy, and there isn't a French man who can look you in the eye without trembling a little. The monarchy won't know what hit it.

You got: You are Marie Antoinette

You are ... on your way to becoming a bad ass. It's not your fault. You were kept isolated from the peasantry and developed a skewed sense of reality. And even though you were accused of ... a questionable relationship with your son, you are passionate about your children. Plus, no one can beat your ribbon game. No one.
