'La Dictatrice': Is the nightmare future... female?
Issued on: Modified:
Are women just as capable of men of implementing institutionalised cruelty? And what does it take for society's values to crumble in the face of a charismatic leader promising easy solutions? We sit down with historian and author Diane Ducret to discuss her latest book, "La Dictatrice". Drawing direct parallels between modern-day Europe and the rise of Nazism, it’s a novel that urges us to learn the lessons of history.
