Ideas on temperance societies began to circulate in France from the 1830s, when the first associations of this type appeared in English-speaking countries. The French temperance movement was formed at the end of the 19th century, but the contours of its adversary remained unclear until the First World War: activists fought both for temperance and against alcoholism, without defining these notions. Women were engaged in associations of that time, but their action was hardly visible. During the War 14-18, the alcohol - distilled drinks and drinks with a titer of more than 23° - was declared "the enemy of the interior" and was actively combated by temperance activists and in particular by the Union of French women against alcohol. Wine and other fermented beverages avoided attacks throughout the interwar period and during the Second World War. From the 1950s, the idea that all alcoholic beverages are potentially harmful began to assert slowly in public opinion. The state started the fight against alcoholism: its objective was the prevention of health. Therefore, temperance associations were obliged, and still are, to reinvent themselves, trying to conform to new trends in health prevention sphere. Women activities also shifted, due to major social changes as the acquisition of the right to vote, the baby boom of the Thirty Glorious Years and the media coverage of female alcoholism
