The angry spouse allegedly enlisted the help of a group of women to rip of the accused woman's top before slapping her across the face. Shocking footage has captured the moment a jilted wife beats her husband's mistress to the ground amid claims the pair had been having an affair. In the clip, a group of women are seen hitting another woman, who is believed to have been seeing one of their husbands. One woman is seen hitting the topless 'mistress' across the head before attempting to pull her clothes off her body. Traffic appears to have been brought to a standstill as a result of the fight, and cars in the background can be heard beeping their horns as they attempt to make their way through the chaos. In the clip, the 'mistress' keeps her hands over her face, but does not fight back as she is pulled around by the group.
Mistress of the Revolution by Catherine Delors Reviewed by Margaret Donsbach Mistress of the Revolution opens like a rollercoaster as its beautiful young heroine falls inappropriately in love and discovers that under the laws and customs of pre-Revolutionary France she is not a human being with rights but a commodity at the disposal of her male relations. The target of this biting novel is less the male sex than legal codes and cultural norms that strip power from certain groups of people while granting others an excess. Absolute power corrupts…. Readers follow Gabrielle from provincial France where her family are minor nobility, to Paris and Versailles where the aristocracy is burning itself out in an orgy of conspicuous consumption. Marie Antoinette is a grumpy woman with "an elongated face, a thick lower lip, bulging blue eyes and ruddy cheeks, either naturally or from too much rouge," who comes "alive, enthralled by the game" when she gambles at cards. As the violence and spasmodic idealism of the Revolution erupts, Gabrielle's personal struggle widens to include concern for her country and the people from various walks of life to whom she has grown close. She and her fellow citizens pick their way through the constantly shifting legal codes that govern their daily lives, while the mounting piles of headless bodies remind them of the perils of a false step.
