This year on International Women’s Day we honor two female members of the Resistance during World War II, who were imprisoned in the Ravensbrück women's concentration camp. Germaine Tillion Geneviève de Gaulle and will be interred in the Pantheon. They will join 72 men and only two other females -- Marie Curie, and the wife of a French politician who was buried with her husband. The motto above the door states: "To great men, a grateful country." At long last, it may now also become a monument to great women.
