  • create national coordination of the fight against violence against women under the auspices of the President or the President of the Republic. The protection of women should be at the center of all public policy through a body responsible for the study, oversight and transparent evaluation of public policy at the highest level of the state.
  • Implement specialized courts and brigadestrained in the fight against violence against women and volunteers, following the Spanish example.
  • Constitutionalization of the right to abortion and to grant effective access to this right to all women on French territory. Remove practitioners’ double conscience clause and re-evaluate this medical act for an effective right of choice.

  • To adopt a law for the economic emancipation of women which repeals the legal mechanisms that increase their insecurity, and which, from above, equalizes the treatment of women in pairs, regardless of the regime of ordinary life.
  • Extend the compulsory leave of the second parent (paternity leave), increasing the value of maternity leave without loss of pay and introducing attractive parental leave for both parents.
