Sexism? What sexism?
The incident was widely denounced as sexist in a country where the word chicken is often used as a derogatory term for women.
Véronique Massonneau was forced to stop her address to the National Assembly in Paris when her conservative rival, Philippe Le Ray, began to make the noises.
However, as she resumed her speech on planned pension reform the heckling resumed, prompting the president of the National Assembly to step in.
Watch the video. See the other conservative male MP, talking to the camera in the hall outside afterwards, say “Vive le macho!” and walk away then turn around to smirk happily.
