France’s municipal body ‘Paris City Hall’ has been fined 90,000 euros (about Rs 81,20,144) for violating the rule of maintaining gender equality by appointing more women to the top positions in 2018. Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo has called the fines unfair and inconsistent at a city council meeting on Tuesday.

In 2018, 11 women and five men were appointed to the top positions at Paris City Hall. In this way, 69 percent of the women appointments were made. In view of this, the Ministry of Civil Services has imposed this fine.

Violation of these rules
In fact, these appointments are unheard of in 2013, in which the Suvadate Law was passed to ensure women had better access to senior positions in the civil service. Under this law, 40 percent appointment of both women and men is necessary.

In France, this rule was made so that women could have access to senior positions. At the same time it was also tried to ensure that in any department, more than 60 percent of the same sex does not happen.

Mayor said, women need to be promoted
Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo said, “Yes, we need to strongly promote women, because France is still very backward on this issue.” To achieve gender equality, it is necessary to speed up the pace and ensure that there are more women than men in enrollment.

This is why this law was needed in France
Despite being the most liberal and secular in European countries, discrimination in women continues to occur in France. The occupation of men in senior positions and participation of women is quite limited. The situation is worse in administrative positions. In the year 2018, only 31 percent of women were in the civil services. In this way, France is very backward in terms of female equality.
