In this edition, how the Académie Française, the country's ultimate authority on the French language, has come under fire for describing gender-neutral text as an "aberration." Also as fallout continues from the Harvey Weinstein affair, we talk to British author, Lucy Wadham, about whether French women view harassment differently to their Anglo-American sisters.
