front so whether the world economic forum isn't optimistic predicting french woman will only get what that jews in the year two thousand one hundred and sixty eight. westerly there's so many factors at play in this discussion of gender pay gap around the world- and crucially experts say that what really needs to change. is societal things including and crucially parental leave and child care right because it's when women become mothers that you really see that gap increase capability with our business update thank you so much. we're gonna cross the table now to james creedon who with a media watch update what's poppin online on social media. and you're starting with accusations made by a french actress against a well known director he said she says that he sexually assaulted her when she was a minor. that's right it's a obviously raise a lot of eyebrows and got a lot of reactions here in france that christoph hoosier- in one of his
3:52 pm
big at first big feature films cold out or the devils and she played a twelve year old autistic girl it involves a quite a long. period away from home and away from family on sash and she says that during that time there was set inappropriate touching of a sexual nature. i'm the sort of sexual harassment and sexual assault that went on over a prolonged period of time. and media part. what a well respected left. a left leaning. online newspaper spent seven month investigation this- they had- one journalist full time dedicated to a twenty three different people participated in quite a long- investigation- rusia himself i did not reply to any of media parts at. it with a request that he would participate or our response i
3:53 pm
and so as a journalist said in in a in a long interview that is also up on online and a video interview she said that this is it every word was carefully measured in putting this report together in other words this is not- as so much musicians of me to type- revelations at some accusations that you know it this this is just one person's word against another put up on social media put up online that is not the case here these were thoroughly. vetted claims and do journalistically investigations so at me to park on twitter of also been giving giving her a platform view this interview i have she's she's she answers questions about why she hasn't gone through the court system and actually at suit- mister regina and she says that she doesn't have enough faith in the justice system in france when it comes to matters of when it comes to rape allegations of sexual assault allegations she says that you know maybe one in ten cases makee it a lot of amer thrown out. on that the odds are stacked against women in these sort of situations as she also spoke about how the men
3:54 pm
who are responsible for the sort of- assaults sexual assaults on on minors- in this particular instance they're often constance monsters as a bar in much of me to base that those who work at the accused were copper report work were cast in many cases as monsters and what she says actually they are our brothers are our our friends our folders that these are ordinary people a lot of the time and- so it's quite a quite an intelligence at. i suppose our assessment over at the broader i issues surrounding sexual assault and a it's really counts is what went on and she does say that- i really- the fact that i can speak publicly. about this. is thanks to the fact that. at me to happens in the u. s. and as she put it feels that she is a responsibility today. to cast to help a spotlight people's on this aspect of the french. movie industry. and set to help kind of break the silence enough regard no just a little
3:55 pm
bit of context the- there was a hash tag that sort of mirrored the me too harsh tied. at some something or you know in in in the aftermath of me to call back on a stump or or squeal on you were. perverts you could loosely translators. the woman who put in that case as some cotton there who accused the tv executive office sexual harassment. i via text message at she he she was an accused of death defamation. i'm actually- lost a case and she said she had to delete the tweet in which she recounted- the kind of- well sexual her but she came to be such a rust and what he said was sort of loot. and heavy traffic so it's a kind of at the latest installment in los is i suppose. at france's sort of- the frerench chapters e two story. and so long after this the harvey wants dean incident- still seeing these come out all over the world. next story you're talking about the potential short list for the oscars and nigerian film has been disqualified. because it u uses too much english. this is- just quickly on this one it's the film is called lion
3:56 pm
heart. and it's actually it all but roughly eleven minutes of the ninety five minute phone- are in english no it there are. no jury has over five hundred languages in english is one of the languages that can keep keep the whole country together if you like. so with putting the spotlight on how- contradictory it is to have an award fart what they have now we named best international feature film is with us foreign language film. and then and in the case of a country like major river english is. the language they're sort of disqualified because of thought so a lot of people in speaking out against the decision to disqualify. this film at just saying well we will. are you pairing this country from a competing for an oscar. in its official language. so that has generated placement common today as well. right james creating the look at what's- hot online and on social media thank you so much. we're gonna take a quick break but don
