Marie-Pierre Rixain, LREM member of Essonne, president of the delegation for women’s rights at the National Assembly, wishes to establish quotas among senior executives. “Women go to less paid sectors which tomorrow will be sectors of the future”, explained the deputy on franceinfo.

“Our goal is to reach this figure which is intolerable to all of us, which is the 25% to 28% income gap between women and men. The causes are multiple and plural, but there are in particular professional inequalities. “

To restore gender equality, “We must both act on the attractiveness of a certain number of sectors and ask companies to be open to the presence of women in positions of the highest responsibility.”

Marie-Pierre Rixain hopes that within 5 years, there will be 30% of senior executives and 40% within 8 years. “It is not modest. We must give time to companies to constitute these breeding grounds. Some are already beyond, but others are very far from it. We are going to ask women to go to sectors of the future. “ The member does not want to sanction but “If companies do not engage in this proactive policy of equality within their companies, sanctions may be imposed on them.”
