Several of France's female ministers are fighting to end the sexual harassment they say is rampant in the country's government.
More than a dozen former ministers published an open letter in Le Journal du Dimanche listing specific examples of remarks they say male colleagues made.
These included comments like, "Your skirt is too long, you need to shorten it," and, "Aside from her great breasts, how is she?"
