There was a park across the road from the clocktower with a really pretty fountain in it. There weren't too many people in the park, but maybe the fact that it was raining had something to do with it?
Women from all over France came to the meeting. Even from French overseas territories like Réunion (in the Indian Ocean) and New Caledonia (Pacific Ocean). Oh and also from Burundi!
