International Women’s Day – Documentary entitled “Par une porte entrouverte”

To mark the 40th International Women’s Day, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development has produced a documentary entitled “Par une porte entrouverte” (“Through a partially opened door”) which traces the history of women in the diplomatic corps.

By diving into sometimes overlooked archives and through the testimony of female diplomats, the film tells the story of how the first women in the diplomatic corps managed, despite the resistance, to gain recognition in an environment that had long been exclusively dominated by men. It also stresses that there is still a long way to go.
