En man har nyligen nekats franskt medborgarskap på grund av hans kvinnosyn.
An Algerian-born man living in France has been refused French nationality because of his "degrading attitude" towards women.
The man, who has not been named, is married to a Frenchwoman, but does not allow her to leave the family home freely, it was claimed.
In what is seen as a legal precedent, his application for French nationality was turned down because "his idea of sexual equality is not that of the republic", according to a high-ranking official quoted by French radio station Europe 1.
The French constitution states that the government can refuse nationality or strip nationality for a "lack of integration". The interior minister, Claude Guéant, has made it clear he expects candidates for nationality to not only integrate but "assimilate" into French society.
