She was also a determined advocate for women's rights, a defender of the idea of the equality of the sexes — arging that since women, like men, had the capability of intellectual accomplishment and should be able to achieve total economic independence.

Francoise believed that with quality education, women's accomplishments were on par with those of men's. She believed women could succeed in life if two basic conditions were afforded to them: a high standard of education, and secondly, parents who raised their daughters to "reverence themselves", as she put it.

Her landmark essays on the subject influenced later femnist thinkers and the immediate content of the Declaration on the Rights of All Citizens and Peoples adopted by the government of her son,Karl V, in 1800.

Francoise also developed a wide variety of artistic interests. She produced delicate engravings by using a diamond on glass. She became expert in sculpture, wax modelling, and the carving of ivory and wood. She also painted, and a number of her portraits can be seen at the Hermitage Museum.
