Amélie de Dietrich, a businesswoman in the 19th century

07 June 2023

In “Les Grandes Histoires de l’éco“, the history and economics podcast of “Les Echos“, Pauline Jacot and her guests tell you how a woman, Amélie de Dietrich, succeeded in the 19th century in taking the reins of a company and transform it into a huge industrial group. A masterstroke at a time when women were confined to the domestic sphere.

Guests of episode 7, season 1: Charlotte le Chapelain (professor in economics at Jean Moulin Lyon 3 University) and Herrade Igersheim (research professor at CNRS, BETA).
