France is still "extremely sexist," according to Watchdog.
In its annual report, an equality monitor established by the government claims that five years after the #MeToo movement began, French society "remains profoundly sexist in all of its areas."
A national "emergency plan" was demanded on Monday by the High Council for Equality between Women and Men in order to tackle "the huge, violent, and often murderous repercussions" of sexism. The council also raised concerns about the high rates of sexual violence that women report.
The nation's equality council issues a warning about the prevalence of sexual violence, claiming that younger generations are the most afflicted.
One-third of women who responded to a study the council had commissioned stated their spouses had pressured them into having sex they did not want to.
According to the council, around one in seven respondents claimed that men had forced sex on women, and a comparable amount claimed that their partners had assaulted and punched them.
The council's president, Sylvie Pierre-Brossolette, expressed special worry about sexism among young males who have "bathed in social media, digital [technology], and pornography."
Sexism, according to her, needs to be "fought from the youngest of ages."
On Wednesday, the council will deliver its recommendations to French President Emmanuel Macron.
In an interview with the broadcaster France Inter, Pierre-Brossolette claimed that "young people in particular are brought up digitally on these scenes of commonplace violence, of relationships between men and women that are fully of domination and subjugated, and that has contaminated society."
It is really difficult to eradicate sexism, she remarked.
According to the council, at least 80% of women believe that men are given preferential treatment because of their sex.
It said that these occurrences were becoming more frequent and more serious in the public, professional, private, and digital realms. It saw a dichotomy in the public's perception of sexism, which acknowledged its presence but did not condemn it in practice.
Nearly a fifth of men ages 25 to 34 said they occasionally feel forced to use force in order to be respected.
40% of men across all age categories believed it was typical for women to leave their jobs to care for children.
