“Women and girls are the first to be affected by poverty, conflict, the consequences of global warming; they are the first victims of sexist and sexual violence, which too often prevents them from moving around freely, working or choosing what happens to their bodies. [...] It’s time our world stopped making women victims and at last gave them their rightful place – the one where they are leaders too!”
Emmanuel Macron, speech at the United Nations General Assembly, on 25 September 2018.
On 9 and 10 May, in Paris, took place the Gender Equality Ministers meeting.

Implementing an active and determined feminist foreign policy is a French priority.
France has announced that 50% of French official development assistance (ODA) must be allocated to measures supporting gender equality by 2022.
In 2019, feminist foreign policy will be deployed primarily around three key points:
1/2Remise du Prix Simone Veil, le 8 mars 2019 © Présidence de la République.
2/2Photo de famille du Conseil Consultatif pour l'égalité femmes/hommes © Présidence de la République.
These priorities will be pursued with the precious assistance of the Gender Equality Advisory Council, which was created under the Canadian G7 Presidency and renewed by France’s President.
