The ongoing fight for transgender rights in France
This week, we're focusing on France's transgender community. Around 80 percent of people who identify as transgender in France report having been the target of discrimination and/or violence. This worrying figure is only the tip of the iceberg for these men and women, who are caught in a double bind of administrative, medical and social challenges and the dire economic consequences of those obstacles. We bring you a first-hand account of two transgender citizens. We also speak to sociologist and researcher Emmanuel Beaubatie about how France treats its transgender population.
