La discrimination sexiste : les regards du droit

    The purpose of this article is to take stock of recent radical changes in the legal approach to gender-based discrimination with respect to international law and particularly European Union law. The requirement to transpose European directives has obliged the French legal system to transform its legal grammar so as to accept broader definitions of discriminatory acts and make it easier to prove them. These changes set new horizons in the fight against gender discrimination. Given the permanent state of inequality between men and women, it is up to the law to resolve the issues related to the handling of multi-discrimination and to the dilemmas involved in the recourse to positive actions. JEL classification codes: J71, J16, K31.
