If you are a 19-year-old woman, there are very specific things that directors and the people in positions of power in the industry - who tend to be older men - are going to want you to be and do. They are not going to want some chatty, difficult, slightly spoilt girl.
People in positions of power and privilege have a duty to perform at a higher level. If not them, then who?
France, after the month of May, will share trust with the current leadership of the United States which, on many subjects, has tended to take useful positions in our view.
One thing that makes France different from other countries is the tradition of social solidarity.
