In the 8th episode of the Influential French Women radio series, you’ll get a glimpse into the life of Sarah Bernahardt and how she became the most famous French-speaking actress of her time. Her extravagant lifestyle, seduction techniques and Jewish heritage brought her much criticism but in the end, she always remained true to herself and stuck to her guns, which in part explains the admiration she inspired worldwide. An ambassador for French culture, she travelled the globe, but she was also fiercely patriotic and helped French war efforts in her own special ways.
