Ségolène Royal and Amy Davidsen in Conversation

Ségolène Royal, France’s former Minister of Environment, will discuss her most recent book, Ce que je peux enfin vous dire, along with her political career and long-time activism in favor of government action on climate change, with Executive Director in North America of The Climate Group, Amy Davidsen.

The first woman to ever make it to the second round of a French presidential election, Ségolène Royal faced violent outbursts of hostility throughout her career, some of which were attributed to her success as a woman in a man’s world. In her latest book, Ce que je peux enfin vous dire, Royal draws parallels between the violent treatment of powerful women in today’s society and the destruction of our environment.

Watch on Livestream at 6:30 p.m. EST on Wednesday, February 13, 2019.
