Anne-Cécile Mailfert

Hello to all those who read us, my name is Anne-Cécile Mailfert And I am president of the Women's Foundation, the reference foundation in France for women's rights and the fight against the violence they are victims.

Hello everyone, I am Gastine chrysoline And I co-founded Balzac Paris With my associates Charles and Victorien. So I'm basically A woman in the midst of men ! But the trend quickly reversed because at Balzac Paris we are almost almost that women on the team. 

Anne-Cécile, today I am Mom of two little girls and a little boy, and I would have liked to know if you think that tomorrow, if we educate our little boys well, Does this have a real impact on the situation of women around the world?

Anne-Cécile Mailfert

For sure ! I don't think there is a "violent" gene On the Y chromosome. When we look at the journey of a violent man, it often goes hand in hand with a very bad education towards girls, For example because there have been violent male models to women around. To educate your boys is obviously crucial. This is also one of the subjects on which we alerted the government 6 months ago: we must of course help women because it is an emergency situation, but we must not forget that we must also see in the long term and that the situation cannot improve If we educate girls and boys. It is not all to educate girls to defend themselves if opposite we do not educate little boys not to try to crush girls!

Do we arrive at a Equality Men / Women Or could we tend towards a situation where the roles are likely to be reversed?

Anne-Cécile Mailfert

No feminist wishes never replicate what men do to women Conversely. No feminist wants to establish a system that can recreate these inequalities, this injustice and this violence, on the contrary! What we want is A more peaceful system, fairer and more egalitarian. That one is not reduced to his sex and that one is not reduced to typical speeches "if you are a girl, then you go in such a box". If you are a girl, You do what you want in life, And if you are a boy, you do what you want in life, just in depending on your qualities and your skills!

Towards what age do you think we can sensibly children to all these questions?

Anne-Cécile Mailfert

Little girls are starting to feel Less smart than boys at 6 ! So there is not really age ... a few years ago we had made a video called "You will be a man my son" which showed several scenes of life shared by small, young and large boys accompanied by an older male figure (a dad, a coach ...). The video explains that "you will be a man my son" when You will learn to manage your anger, to accept failure in front of a girl, to look at a woman without her being afraid of you ... and that ultimately "you will be a man my son" when you learn to respect women, and it starts young! Violence against women are not just a matter of women, the role of men is above all to learn and set up an example to other men, Especially in small boys.
