Equality and the new French government

In this edition, he may have filled half of his Cabinet with women but France's new President Emmanuel Macron attracts criticism for failing to create a ministry for women's rights.

Plus one year on after breaking the "grass" ceiling, we check in with Helene Schrub who in 2016 became the first female manager in French football.
