Hundreds of women report gender Paris reflexes Strauss-Kahn's case

A thousand people convened by feminist organizations have focused on Sunday in Paris to protest what they denounced as the outcrop in France of "sexist and reactionary reflexes" after the scandal of Dominique Strauss-Kahn. The demonstrators gathered near the Pompidou center, in the center of the city with two personalities as head of the movement: the TV reporter Audrey Pulvar, and Clementine Autain communist politics.

In a statement last few days has received the support of 13,000 signatures, feminists charged against various statements by political and media that gave the impression to minimize the seriousness of the acts of sexual assault has been charged with the former managing director International Monetary Fund.

"We are witnessing a resurgence of sexist and reactionary reflexes, likely to arise between French elites," denounced the protesters, for whom the attitude in France demonstrates that there is "no complex sexism. The text editors complained that the statements "tend to downplay the seriousness of the violation," as if it were a "slip." Also considered objectionable because they have "an intolerable confusion between sexual freedom and gender violence." All of this illustrates his view the lack of violence that women are subjected, which is "particularly troubling" in a country where there are 75,000 rapes each year.
