France set to enact sweeping changes to sexual equality laws

Telegraph: The proposals will include "ABC of gender equality" lessons for children as young as six, the threat of imposing compulsory equal pay for men and women in the same jobs and tougher laws on domestic violence.  France's women's rights minister Najat Vallaud-Belkacem said: "This will become the third generation of equality legislation after women were given the right to vote in 1944 and abortion was legalised in 1975." She made the comments on the day France called its first cross-ministry meeting on women's' rights in 12 years.
