La Commune de Paris. Wednesday, May 17, 1871

La Commune de Paris. Wednesday, May 17. The districts of Auteuil and Passy have become uninhabitable owing to the continual fall of large-caliber howitzers on them, fired from Montretout and Mont-Valérien. The Versailles army has positioned itself at the southwest gates of Paris and the artillery shots are getting closer and closer. The offensive of the Versailles army is awaited, but nevertheless, social measures continue to be taken. With regard to the receipt of pensions, the Commune decreed the equality of legitimate and natural children, spouses and de facto partners. Today the Central Committee of the Women's Union invited all women workers to meet this evening in order to appoint delegates from each guild to form the women's union chambers.
