She was in countercurrent of nearly everything in her time and had to fight to advance her fundamental modernism. She was an early adopter of the Age of Enlightenment (” Siècle des Lumières “) which advanced the pursuit of human happiness and scientific reasoning over faith-based cultural and social absolutism.
