French Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault Ayrault, made no promises he had not intention of keeping, but instead he just stepped right up and put into action the parity America can only dream of! Heart be still– this indeed is what a real feminist leader looks like.
And this is what gender parity looks like: 50 % women !!
New French cabinet achieves gender parity http://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article.cfm?c_id=2&objectid=10806482
The appointments made by French Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault Ayrault, the day after he was appointed premier by incoming President Francois Hollande, boosted the proportion of women in ministerial posts from only four out of 25 (16 per cent) in the previous administration of Francois Fillon to 17 out of 34 (50 per cent).
Prior to the naming of the new French government, the percentage of women in the governments of the 27 European Union countries – which do not include Iceland or Sweden – stood at 23.4, according to the Robert Schuman Foundation.
France was formerly in 18th position, just behind Italy, which currently has three women among its 18 cabinet members.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words but this guy Jean-Marc Ayrault needs no Superman costume because his actions speaker loader than any broken promises ever made or the insinuation we may have gotten from the left leaning MS. Magazine cover!
Meanwhile after nearly four years, Mr. Obama, so far has seemed maddeningly off point. His message to the Barnard graduates was that they should fight for a “seat at the table” — the head seat, he made sure to add. He conceded that it’s a tough economy, but he told the grads, “I am convinced you are tougher” and “things will get better — they always do.”
I think I will just leave it at that! Anyone who can’t figure out what happened here nearly four years ago and what is happening with the so called party of women now in contrast to real action will not benefit from a fuller explanation anyway!
And I am sure the men and women are paid the same!
