Liberated Woman, French Revolutionary, or Both?
This chapter examines the athletic career of French tennis star, Suzanne Lenglen, who participated during the Golden Age of sports in the 1920s. Lenglen was one of the first female athletes to achieve worldwide recognition and acclaim for her tennis success, as well as her influence on the sport, including her fashion. Lenglen’s appeal extended beyond the tennis courts, and part of her lasting image rests on her ability to both challenge and reinforce ideas around femininity in sport during the 1920s.
