Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That is an extremely depressing comment, which makes it all the more plausible, unfortunately.

But why "especially women over 65"?  What dynamic is at work that makes women of that generation more than men less likely to accept a woman as president?  (Should I say French women of that generation?)  Do you suspect a certain vindictive bitterness with respect to the social and political opportunities/freedoms that younger French women of today have that were not available to them when they were in their prime?

Truth unfolds in time through a communal process.
