Hi! I'm Marlène Schiappa. I'm the Minister of State for Gender Equality, attached to the Prime Minister in France.

I was born in Paris in 1982. I graduated in Communication and New Media, specializing in electronic writings. I previously served as an assistant and a new media monitoring officer for Euro RSCG, a journalist for Yahoo.fr, an editorial director of a news agency, and a novelist and essayist. 

I also created a network called “Maman travaille” (mom works). I was elected deputy mayor of Le Mans, and acted as Gender Equality Officer in 2014. I was also elected Community advisor, delegate French Tech in Le Mans metropolis, and was nominated as Gender Equality Minister of France in May 2017.

Now's your chance to ask me anything! Please write your questions in the comments section below and I'll answer the questions live on Wednesday, March 14th at 2:45pm ET in a special recorded interview. The video will be posted here on Friday, March 16th.

    Hi, I came to your conference today in french embassy of NY. You talked about sensibilize people about sexism in education. But what about artistic and sports education ? Don t you think that french institutions such as Opera de Paris should be aware of the impact they have on children especially young girls ? In the same way, those senbilizations should maybe include dance, music, sport teachers Who are in direct contact with young generations

    @Marlene Schiappa Bonjour! I'm a student from California who has been studying French for a few years now (though I still have a quite a bit to work on before I can call myself fluent). I studied you and the government you're affiliated with recently and was incredibly excited for this opportunity to ask you about your experience as a politician in France. 


    What motivated you to pursue a political career and how did your communications background assist this career, beyond the obvious connections? Also, as the minister of gender equality, do you feel that the path for women to pursue careers in politics has grown easier? How do you feel platforms like Mogul and the democratization of content have empowered women to pursue political careers?

    Aloha Marlene! It's so wonderful to have you here on Mogul. What advice/ideas do you have to get more women into STEM? I feel like there is an immense amount of opportunity for women today in more quant-based field but many still aren't interested and/or choose to pursue more humanities-based fields instead.

    France contravene CRC and sets the minimum age for consensual sex to 15 years old. 
    Don't you find that this will lead to legalizing PEDOPHILIA? 
    Will we see child brides in France?
