Benoîte Groult (January 31, 1920, in Paris – June 20, 2016 in Hyères) was a French journalist, writer and feminist activist.

Her novel Les vaisseaux du cœur, published in 1988, was called pornographic by some because of its explicit sexual depictions.[1] It was filmed by Andrew Birkin in 1992 as Salt on Our Skin.

In April 2010, she became Commander of the Légion d'honneur.[2]
