Podcast: banlieue Gay Pride, women's football in France, the greening of Macronism

By Sarah Elzas, Alison Hird, Michael Fitzpatrick, Pierre Olivier

The origins of women's football in France and how the language is trying to keep up with game. Also, the first gay pride march in poorer working-class suburbs known as les banlieues aiming at fighting growing homophobia. Plus,  A&E hospital workers at breaking point opt to strike. And can the government avoid double-speak in its pledge to boost both the environment and the economy? 

In this episode:

Ghislaine Royer-Soeuf, former captain of Rheims women's football team

Saint-Denis Ville au Coeur, organisers of the Gay Pride march in St Denis
