As part of the Generation Equality Forum, France is carrying forward the Charter of Commitments for Cultural and Creative Industries (Charte pour l’égalité entre les femmes et les hommes dans les secteurs culturels). This charter aims at fighting sexist representations, sexual and gender-based violence and harassment in the film, radio, TV, music, video games, advertising, as well as children and young people’s literature and toys.
In this framework and on the occasion of his official visit in India on 13th April 2021, Minister Le Drian celebrated proactive initiatives to promote women in movies and the audiovisual industry such as Indian Woman Rising and Collectif 50/50.
On this occasion, Minister Le Drian said: “India and France share the same passion for cinema. I was proud to congratulate Indian and French women producers for their Indo-French collaborations and for their work towards gender equality in this field. The Embassy of France in India will also play its part, through this agreement with the Collectif 50/50. Gender equality is a foremost priority of France’s foreign policy”.
