Reconstructing Mankind

(p.327) 14 Reconstructing Mankind
France: The Dark Years, 1940–1944

Julian Jackson

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the Vichy regime’s policy towards women and the young. The ‘reconstruction of mankind’ began with women and the young. In the language of Vichy, the ‘young’ meant boys and young men; ‘women’ meant mothers. Boys were to be brought up to become the virile elite of the new France; women to become their mothers, wives, and helpmates.

Keywords:   Vichy regime, social policy, women, youth, spaces of liberty
