In 17th century France, salons were parties hosted by prominent women called salonnieres where enlightened conversations flowed over cocktails.

Though these parties were usually for both men and women (ours are not) they were important because they marked the first time women had a chance to voice their views and ideas in a public space during a time when they could not publish their thoughts. Because of this, women began influencing intellectual opinions, scientific ideas, and the topics philosophers studied, marking a cultural shift in how women were involved in society.

In a male-dominated society salons were a place women felt free.

Madame de Lambert created salons for both literary and high society crowds. 

Madame de Lambert was a feminist and vocal gender-equality advocate who many times openly defended women against the misogynistic stereotypes that were rampant at that time. 

She's quoted as having said, "Curiosity is knowledge that has already begun; it will make one go faster and further in the path of truth."
