Transcript of the appeal launched by Nathalie Loiseau on March 8, 2018:
“Today, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs has committed itself to #JamaisSansElles and we ask you, ambassadors around the world, to do the same; to ensure that when you organize a symposium, a conference, or a round table, that you remember that International Affairs is of interest to both sexes. Therefore, men and women need to debate side by side. As for the Ministry for Foreign Affairs in Paris, it is committed to ensuring that the next Ambassadors’ Week is fully compatible with its commitment to #JamaisSansElles and that women and men will come to debate the biggest international issues of the moment.”
