Happy International Women's Day - you still earn 25% less

It's International Women's Day and we're looking at how close women are to the goal of equal pay, women's rights in post-revolutionary Egypt and Tunisia, and who does most of the housework.

La Croix looks at how close women are to equal pay - with an average 16% pay gap in the EU, the answer is not very.

Le Figaro looks at the inspirational activist who got virginity tests banned in Egypt - while Libération analyses the state of women's rights in Tunisia, one year after the revolution.

Le Parisien has good news - women do an hour's less housework on average than 25 years ago - but men only do six minutes more.
