The interrelationships among depopulation nationalism and feminism in France at the end of the nineteenth century are explored. Attention is given to the decline in the birth rate at that time the nationalist fears that such a decline would have serious implications for Frances role as a world power and the potential conflict between nationalist fears and the growing feminist movement. It is noted that French feminists emphasized womens roles as wives and mothers in order to avoid a conflict with mens concern over the population problem and also to promote desired legal reforms in the absence of the vote.
