(en) France, UCL - Macron Report #2: Antipatriarchy (ca, de, it, fr, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Thu, 28 Apr 2022 08:04:34 +0300

"Great cause of the quinquennium", gender equality has been cheerfully trampled: 0.25% of the state budget, and not even a ministry: a secretary of state. The balance sheet is without appeal. ---- Impunity for violence against women / or Impunity for violence against men? ---- Women have had Darmanin, accused of rape, imposed on the Interior, a sexist anti-metoo in Justice, and a violent repression of several feminist demonstrations during the five-year term. ---- Macron was more concerned about an "inquisition society" when women denounced Hulot, than about the 620 women killed under his mandate[1]. The Police and Justice are still just as sexist, abusive and ineffective in protecting women, and emergency accommodation places are still sorely lacking.

What is the purpose of the new sexist contempt offense in this context? It would have been better to keep the promises of online complaint filing, the creation of a file of violent spouses, and a specialized court.

Worse, the 2003 circular, reaffirmed in 2018, requiring schools to provide three annual education sessions on equality and emotional and sexual life has still not been applied.

The despised workers
Still poorly paid and poorly considered: while female workers, overrepresented in the care, service and cleaning professions, were the first to face the pandemic, the President did nothing for their working conditions. These have continued to deteriorate in feminized sectors such as hospitals, education, personal services, etc. The promise of 30,000 new crèche places has not been kept. The creation of the muddy "equality index" and the establishment of quotas in the management of large companies only aim to conceal the daily and continuous exploitation of women, particularly the most precarious.

Prevented struggles
We will not let Macron take credit for advances in anti-patriarchal struggles. If we can rejoice at the ban on any practice that can be assimilated to conversion therapy, we do not forget that the president spoke out against the extension of abortion times, was silent on free contraception up to the age of 25, delayed the opening of PMA to lesbians and single women and only granted a compulsory week in the extension of paternity leave. Let's not forget either that he refused the deconjugalization of the AAH. Regarding the protection of minors, we had to wait for the scandals of the Matzneff and Duhamel cases and the Sauvet report to have a more protective law and a commission working on incest and sexual violence against minors.

Despite Marriage for All and the Taubira law in 2013, still few LGBT couples have access to adoption because cisgender and heterosexual couples are privileged. The associations' request that the files not mention gender or sexual orientation was not heard.

The procedures for changing civil status for trans people are still just as difficult, and they do not have access to PMA. Despite the bioethics law, sexual reassignment surgeries on intersex children and the hormonal treatments imposed on them are still authorized. We can only link this to positions close to those of the extreme right of the Macron government on questions of sexual orientation and gender identity at school.
