In 2017, Marlene — a longtime supporter of women’s rights—became the nation’s first-ever minister of gender equality. In this capacity, she was successful in advancing a new sexual harassment legislation that permits men to be fined immediately for harassing, catcalling, or following women on the street.
Elisabeth Borne, the French Prime Minister, and other political allies have criticised her for how she looks. According to a source close to the prime minister, Borne told Marlene Schiappa it “wasn’t appropriate, especially during this period” and pulled her up over the cover.

In a tweet on Saturday, Marlene Schiappa addressed her detractors, writing: “Defending the right of women to govern their bodies, that’s everywhere and all the time. Women are autonomous in France.
