From the piece:
Sexist remarks could be punished in France in the same way as driving offences with fines of up to €350 under a plan to curb macho behaviour.
Five MPs commissioned by the centrist government to prepare a bill outlawing male chauvinism in public will call for a new offence of “sexist outrage” in a report later this month.
Elise Fajgeles, one of the MPs, (above) said the offence should be punishable with a Class Four fine, which is €90 (£78) if paid on the spot, €135 if settled within two weeks and €350 after that…
Critics say the scheme will be impossible to implement as men will be fined for sexist outrage only if a police officer witnesses the offence.
