Paris Fined for Hiring Too Many Women to City Council

The city has to cough up over $100,000 USD for violating the law.

Paris city hall has been fined €90,000 EUR (approximately $109,408 USD) for appointing too many women to senior management positions, violating a law that caps gender majority in top civil service positions at 60 percent.

Though the law was overturned in 2019, Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo hired 11 women to fill 16 jobs in 2018 (tipping the gender balance far over 60 percent), rendering the city responsible under the now-defunct regulation. Hidalgo jokingly called her hiring choices “far too feminist,” adding, “This fine is obviously absurd, unfair, irresponsible and dangerous.” French Public Service Minister Amélie de Montchalin tweeted that funds from the fine would be used to finance concrete actions towards promoting women in public service.
