Baccalauréat lists Madame de Lafayette’s La Princesse de Montpensier after protests about sexism in lycée system
A female author has been included in the list of compulsory study books for France’s prestigious literature baccalauréat for the first time since the modern-day exam was introduced more than 20 years ago.
The move follows petitions protesting about sexism and an “excess of testosterone” in the exam syllabus.
