France will try to end violence against women. It will educate the public and children about sexism and violence against women. It wants more police support for victims of domestic violence. France's president spoke on Saturday. He said he wants to educate children about pornography. He also wants to make it easier for rape victims to go to the police. Another aim is to have stronger laws against people harassing women in the street.
Reducing violence against women is one of the government's big promises. There was a minute's silence on Saturday for the women killed by their husband or ex-husband. A woman is killed in France every three days. The president said: "France should no longer be one of those countries where women live in fear." He added that criminals who hurt women should go to prison. Many famous men around the world are currently face charges of sexual assault.
