Paris is one of those cities that seems like it’s encased in amber, where the French colonial past and rigid class structure doesn’t make it easy for women to ascend. They do nevertheless and are forcing a reckoning throughout all walks of life. Travel and food writer Lindsey Tramuta explores the rise of “The New Parisienne.”
