Here is a little about “The Colony”

"Marivaux, considered on the most important of French playwrights of the 18th century is best known for his comedies "The Triumph of Love” and “The Game of Love and Chance.” But he also wrote a fascinating one act that seems well before its time, The Colony. In it, a group of women in a Utopian, far-off colony, rebell against the oppression of men. The piece demands our attention as an early depiction of the struggle for women’s rights. Marivaux, unlike so many of his contemporaries, did not accept the way women were treated in France at the time, their humiliating education, and their inferior social status. He was in favour of women's equality, gave them lead roles usually reserved to men, and, in The Colony, argues that their frivolity was due to the poor quality of their upbringing rather than nature. "
