Here in France, there’s concern over a creeping gender segregation in certain suburbs. In some cafés, which are frequented only by men, women are simply not welcome. But activists are determined to fight back and make sure everyone can share the public space. This report was recently broadcast by our colleagues at France 2 and has been sparking conversations ever since.

A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett, Jessica Sestilli and Elom Marcel Toble.

Guest : Céline PIQUES Spokesperson, "Osez le Féminisme" (’Dare to be a feminist’)
