Today is International Women's Day.

And on the eve of March 8, eight presidential candidates presented their proposals for women on Monday evening, on the LCI program

Face aux Françaises 

and Elle magazine.

Emmanuel Macron, just a candidate, affirmed, in a sequence recorded upstream because of Ukrainian news, that the "great cause" of his next five-year term would "still" be gender equality, because there is still "much to do".

The outgoing president notably proposed "tripling the amount of the fine for offenses of sexist outrage", "doubling the number of investigators on the subjects of intra-family violence and violence against women" and the "creation of a file of perpetrators of domestic violence”.

Le Pen wants "free contraception for all"

Marine Le Pen, for her part, said she wanted "street harassers to be registered as sex offenders".

The National Rally candidate also wanted to "create a status for women with endometriosis and free contraception for all and not just for those under 25", as recently put in place by the government.

The ecologist Yannick Jadot wants the possibility of filing complaints in hospitals for victims of rape and verbalizing more street harassers, with more police.

It also plans to “reverse the burden of proof” in terms of wage inequality, so that it is up to the company to justify any wage inequalities.

Hidalgo's billion euros

Same proposals for the socialist Anne Hidalgo who also offers a billion euros against violence against women, in particular for places of reception, and faster justice, with social workers in the police stations to receive their complaints.

The Insoumis Jean-Luc Mélenchon pleaded for him for a police force specialized in cyberharassment.

He also wanted "more referents in transport" and "more education" vis-à-vis boys.

He also recalled that he was proposing a 10% bonus for women in companies that do not respect the law on equality.

Pécresse wants to tackle the veil

Also present, candidate LR explained that she wanted to extend the free distribution of periodic protection in all Crous and tax these products at 2.5% as "essential goods".

Valérie Pécresse also wants to "prohibit the wearing of the forced veil for little girls in the street, punishable by a fine".

Eric Zemmour defended him as a "fundamental measure" his proposal to revitalize rural areas with a birth bonus of "10,000 euros".

He also judged that “it was essentially because women do not choose the same professions that there are wage differences between men and women”.

Finally, the communist Fabien Roussel explained that he wanted to implement equal pay "in one year" and will appoint "judicial administrators at the head of companies that refuse it".
