I love finding stories about women in history that I never learned about when I was in school. Marguerite Saqui’s story as a famous tightrope walker is one of strength, bravery, and conquering fear. Known for staging “petite revolutions” throughout her life, Marguerite lived her life defying gravity, the patriarchy, and traditional roles of women for the age. I was inspired by her sense of adventure and assured sense of self! Worth a read.
