The struggles of being a woman in France

EPISODE 13: Hey, it’s not just the lighter side of France on this show – sometimes we tackle some more serious issues.

This time, for example, we talk to Annette Young who fronts the France 24 show “The 51 percent” – which is all about women shaping our world.

We talk about being a woman in France, the single mother-of -three Marine Le Pen, and the word Mademoiselle and whether it should be banished.

OK, OK, we also put Annette on the spot to name her favourite cafe and bar etc at the end.

If you’re a Facebooker, follow France 24 here, The 51 Percent here, and The Earful Tower here.

Further listening: If you enjoy trying to understand the French, we do a lot of that around here. Check out our section on it here.
