  • Description

    The French general elections due to be held next month, will be contested by a feminist party, known as Choisir. One of the leaders of the movement is a lawyer, Giselle Halami.

    SYNOPSIS: She recently helped to edit a book which sets out the aims of the party and which contains other facts and figures related to their cause. She was one of the founders of the movement, created in 1971.

    Five years ago, Giselle Halami defended a 17-year-old girl accused of having an illegal abortion under a 1920 French law. The girl was acquitted and soon afterwards, another, more liberal, abortion law was introduced. Since then Madame Halami, has been a leading figure in the fight for womens' equality. She is married and has three children.

    The forthcoming elections, will be contested by 100 women, who represent a wide spectrum of political thought. Their policies, though, will all be feminist. One of their chief aims is to create a Minister for Women. Their slogan... "Politics is too serious to be left to men alone".
