Women’s rights groups protest French ministers’ appointments

PARIS (AP) — Women’s rights groups are protesting French President Emmanuel Macron’s appointment of an interior minister who has been accused of rape and a justice minister who has criticized the #MeToo movement. Feminist activists held two small protests Tuesday in Paris, saying the appointments fly in the face of Macron’s promises to making fighting sexist violence the “Great Cause” of his five-year term. The new interior minister strongly denies the rape accusation and Macron’s office says the investigation wasn’t an obstacle to his appointment. The new justice minister is a lawyer who defended another government member accused of rape, as well as suspected terrorists.
