French Feminism after #MeToo Revue de presse

Workshops

Sunday March 28th from 1 to 3pm EST / 10am to 1pm PST

The country of Simone de Beauvoir had its very own #MeToo reckoning, which gave birth to the slightly more explicit hashtag #BalanceTonPorc. A new generation of journalists and activists spoke up and grabbed the headlines, such as the actress Adèle Haenel (“Portrait Of A Lady on Fire”) who staged a walkout at the César Awards ceremony in 2019. Meanwhile, an older generation of prominent women like Catherine Deneuve publicly disavowed the campaign, which they qualified as “rampant censorship”.
We will explain and discuss the media debates between different generations of French feminists.

  • This workshop will be taught entirely in French and is opened to students of level 5 & up
  • This class will take place online via the video conference platform ZOOM 

About the French Press Review series:

Part of learning French includes learning about France, its long history, vivid culture and current events. You will get to do all of this and more in Coucou’s new “Revue de Presse” workshop series. Find out where the French get their news – they love radio and the 8 o’clock news (“Le 20 Heures”) – and the topics they get angry and passionate about!

Led by Marie Rousseau – Coucou teacher, licensed NYC guide and author of the weekly French “revue de presse”, Le Kiosque de New York – this 3-workshop series will look at the weekly news through articles from prominent newspapers, online publications, podcasts, radio and video, etc …
Participants will be encouraged to share their own picks, which will all be discussed during the 2-hour session. 

Each workshop will also focus on a favorite French topic with roots in the country’s cultural et political history, such as “Les grèves et les manifs” (strikes and labor protests), “La laïcité” (secularism) and “Le féminisme”. We’ll look into the French perspective on these topics and the differences in coverage with the American media.
