Visual Images of Marguerite de Roberval:

This image was found at the McCord Museum in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.  It can be used as a conversation starter in class given that it portrays Marguerite de Roberval as a strong woman, but also has her declaring, “J’ai besoin d’un homme”.  The image can definitely spark a lively discussion.
