Jeanne Manon Roland And Sophie Grandchamp
Jeanne Manon Roland always thought women to be intellectually inferior to men, and so only surrounded herself with male scholars, philosophers, and politicians. That all changed when she met Sophie Granddchamp though, and their friendship was key in helping us preserve some of the most fascinating insights into the French Revolution. 

During the Reign of Terror during the French Revolution, when tens of thousands of death sentences were handed out, Roland was jailed in prison for her political leanings and sentenced to the guillotine. While in her five months in prison, she wrote valuable eye witness reports of the Revolution from the inside, and Grandchamp smuggled those letters out for her, preserving history.
