Approaching the analysis of honor code from the perspective of feminist Olympe Audouard and Marie-Rose Astié de Valsayre, which were active in France during the second half of XIX century, the article aims to provide a more flexible and nuanced interpretation of its gendered boundaries than historians have recognized. In this respect, the article outlines how both feminists manipulated the gendered assumptions of the code of honor to women’s benefit and unmasked its supposed natural basis in the male sex as an artificial construct.
