Résumé
EN
While women in France have made significant progress after the early seventies in bridging the long-standing gap between themselves and their European counterparts in the field of civil rights, women's participation in public life remains a specific area of backwardness of French women. And now progress in other areas is also threatening to slow down precisely because French women continue to fail to address themselves to the political determinants of their status. The link between politics and progressive social measures in favour of women is brought out by the authors' discussion of the impact of the women's movement, the pace of legislative reform bearing on women's status and women's importance as a factor in the country's political life in different periods of recent French history.
