Abstract

Need to colonial Algeria in 1924 and died in Paris in 2011, Simone Ben Amara appears to have lived several lives, during which his assignments and affiliations of class, gender and ‘race’ were blurred. Daughter of settlers, she became anticolonialist and Marxist. Jewish of Algeria and a French citizen, she chose to consider herself a Algerian and struggle for national independence. She became a feminist lawyer who specialises in Muslim law in independent Algeria. Through its private archives, it will be seen that his trajectory questions the possibility of dissenting identities in colonial Algeria and opens up original perspectives on the history of women in independent Algeria.
