Equal opportunities in France: an AFCCRE seminar
The French association of CEMR, AFCCRE, has organised a seminar on equality of women and men in local life, in Paris, on 12 December 2006.
CEMR's European charter for equality of women and men in local life was presented to the participants.
Some thirty representatives of French local and regional governments attended, as well as the MEP and former president of the European Parliament Nicole Fontaine, CEMR secretary general Jeremy Smith, and Mireia Espiau Idoyaga in charge of equal opportunities at the association of Basque municipalities.
The French participants called on French towns and cities to debate, adopt and implement the charter.
