Several definitions of female jobs given by the Larousse cause controversy on social networks. Several internet users accuse the Larousse of giving sexist and misogynist definitions of several professions. The editorial staff of Europe 1 has prepared a top 4 of the most sexist definitions for you.

The controversy is swelling on social networks. The Huffington Post talks about it even Thursday morning. The Larousse dictionary is accused of sexism for several definitions considered "misogynist or even downright oriented" by some Internet users. On February 4, Larousse was first hit by the Twitter account "Pépite sexiste", an association to raise awareness of stereotypes and sexism in marketing. The editorial staff of Europe 1 has prepared a small top 4 of the most sexist definitions for you.

A mistress

A master is one who commands or is likely to teach. The mistress, quite naturally, is, according to Larousse, a lady "with whom a man has romantic and sexual relationships outside of marriage".

A warrior

When the "warrior" is a "person who makes war", the "warrior" is a "young woman, who aggressively and violently claims her place in society" ...

A baker

How do you define a baker, or a butcher? According to Larousse, she is not the "person who makes or sells bread" or "meat", but "the wife of a baker or a butcher, who works in the shop".

A president

What is a "president"? No, it is not "a person who presides over an assembly, a meeting, a court", but the "wife of a president".

Larousse told BFMTV and Le Parisien that the teams were currently working on the 2021 edition of the dictionary without reacting to the controversy.
