Women in politics - is France going backwards?

In Tuesday's French papers: the ruling UMP party claims the Socialist party's primary process breaches voters' rights; there aren't enough women in French politics; and why driving a Porsche won't necessarily help you pull.

UMP General Secretary Jean-François Copé has claimed the Socialist primary process infringes voters' human rights - Le Figaro has plenty of time for that theory, Le Monde not so much.

Also in French politics - Le Parisien is looking at why the number of women in Parliament seems to be going backwards.

Greece is still making the front page of Libération and l'Humanité - both are calling for more European co-operation.

Le Parisien also takes a look at why Qatar is so interested in French football - and slate.fr has some advice on car buying for single men.
