A process has been launched to add the name of the Franco-American artist Joséphine Baker to the Gaîté metro station, learned franceinfo on Friday, November 26 from the Élysée. This decision was taken on the occasion of his entry into the Pantheon on November 30th. The station, located on line 13, in the 14th arrondissement of Paris, was chosen for its proximity to rue Bobino, the last theater where the singer, dancer and actress performed.

The decision, which falls under the jurisdiction of Ile-de-France Mobilités, has not yet been taken into account. Other solutions are being considered, such as the possibility of giving the name of Joséphine Baker to a new station, on lines 15, 16, 17 or 18 of the Grand Paris Express, which will be launched in the coming years. This would make it possible to give the name of this free and resistant woman to a full-fledged resort.

Of the 304 metro stations in Paris, only seven refer to women in their names: Louise Michel, Europe-Simone Veil, Boucicaut (Marguerite and Aristide Boucicaut), Pierre and Marie Curie, Madeleine (Marie Madeleine), Chardon-Lagache (Pierre-Alfred Chardon and Amélie Lagache), Barbès-Rochechouart (Armand Barbès and Marguerite de Rochechouart de Montpipeau). Two of the stations of the extension of line 4 will bear the names of Barbara and Bagneux-Lucie Aubrac.

Josephine Baker will be the first black woman to enter the Pantheon on November 30, and only the sixth woman. Simone Veil was the last to enter in 2018.
