French Radio London (no link available)
Speaking in French, Dr Rainbow Murray was a guest this week on French Radio London’s Prêt à Parler show. Rainbow was talking about French parity law and why, despite this law, France still compares relatively unfavourably to its European neighbours in terms of women's representation. The discussion considered whether female politicians are more likely to act for women, and why it matters who our representatives are. The Dominique Strauss-Kahn affair and its impact on the forthcoming general election was considered, as was the evolution of the French political party system.
