Women in Business in France

Women are gaining an increasingly prominent position in French business life – with particularly strong representation in retail and service industries.

Once again, the prerequisite for success as a woman is to have achieved a suitable level of education.

Some evidence points to less progress having been made in the more engineering-based industries and that they are less accepted in senior positions outside Paris.

Expatriate women working in France should feel little gender bias towards them and will be judged on their intellect, verbal skills and technical ability.
