    Abstract:
    This case study looks at the march of the Paris women to Versailles in October 1789 as a paradigmatic point in the history of demonstration. The march of the market women is also an expression of their long tradition of political participation as members of a corporative estate as well as of the experience of loss of power. The focus is above all on the dialectics of disenfranchisement and traditional rights and on the thus implied question of the limitations of δῆμος, the politically constituted people. Starting from a visual source and the featured demonstrative dimension of the procession the constitutional history of demonstration is given a different perspective from literature based mainly on written testimonials.
