Square named after Gisèle Halimi

    Gisèle Halimi (b. La Goulette, Tunisia, 1927 – d. 2020, Paris, France) was a Tunisian-French lawyer, politician, essayist, and feminist activist. She was born to a modest, practicing Jewish Berber family, was educated at a French lycée in Tunis, and then attended the University of Paris, graduating in law and philosophy. Her childhood and the ways in which she blends a Jewish-Muslim identity are discussed in her memoir, Le lait de l’oranger. She was first married to Paul Halimi and then to Claude Faux. She died the day after her 93rd birthday, on 28 July 2020.
