French Feminists Catch Up
"It's one of the first distinctions visitors to France learn to make: the title 'Mademoiselle' for young unmarried women, and 'Madame' for other women. But now a feminist group is trying to scrap the traditional French equivalent of the English 'Miss' - and is promoting an online petition for it to be outlawed, leaving only 'Madame' for all adult French women".
How awful for them to have to admit that the dreaded Anglo-Saxons are ahead of them!
