Marie Thérèse Rodet Geoffrin (26 June 1699 – 6 October 1777) was a leading female figure of the French Enlightenment.

Geoffrin became known for her salon in Paris, which helped establish a salon tradition among Enlightenment intellectuals, who would engage in intellectual discussions with politeness.[1] She was buried in the Church of Saint-Roch, along with the Enlightenment lumniaries Denis Diderot and the Baron d'Holbach.[2]
