Isabelle Bogelot (11 May 1838, Paris - 14 June 1923, Boulogne-Billancourt) was a French philanthropist and feminist.


Born Isabelle Amélie Cottiaux, Bogelot was the daughter of Antoine André Cottiaux, a Parisian cotton trader, and Marie Anne Thérèse Cottiaux, from Cambrai. Orphaned at a young age (her father died when she was 2 and her mother when she was 4), she was adopted by the family of Maria Deraismes and her sister Anna Féresse-Deraismes.[1]

On May 7, 1864, she married Gustave Bogelot, a lawyer for the Court of Appeal of Paris.[2] The couple had at least two children.[3]


On January 1, 1889, she received the Ordre des Palmes académiques for the creation of temporary shelters. On May 2, 1894 she became a chevalier of the Legion of Honour.[4]
