Dr Rainbow Murray writes EUROPP Blog entry



With many commentators praising France’s new president François Hollande for appointing half of his cabinet and government posts to women, Dr Murray argues in her latest article for EUROPP that these appointments are actually less favourable to women than the first Sarkozy government in 2007. “Women got half the jobs, but a much smaller fraction of the power,” says Dr Murray, as most of the key ministerial posts have been given to men.
