French support for the #Metoo movement 2022, by age and political proximity
In 2022, the #Metoo movement was supported by a majority of French people (77 percent), especially among those under 35 (82 percent). However, this support varied according to the political proximity of the French. Indeed, among the general population, supporters of left-wing political parties were more likely to support the movement than those of right-wing parties, although the gap was relatively small. In contrast, only 46 percent of supporters of Eric Zemmour's party supported the movement, which is not very surprising given the sexism and accusations of sexual assault targeting the founder of the Reconquête party. His supporters under the age of 35, however, were nearly three-quarters in support of #Metoo.
