The Musée d'Orsay and Musée de l'Orangerie created the Women Patrons Circle in October 2013. This one-of-a-kind initiative is the result of the mobilisation of more than 120 women and the support of 7 influential networks (below).
Demonstrating their desire to put women in the spotlight, the Circle aims to finance, through generous contributions from individuals and companies, projects arising from the Musée d'Orsay and Musée de l'Orangerie programmes, devoted to women. It also involves making the economic players aware of the various issues around the place of women in society (equality, equal opportunities in the workplace, education, etc.), and creating a genuine platform for exchanges in the long term.
