 Embassy of France in the US - Gender Parity in Politics
In June 2000, an Act was promulgated in France which, for the majority of elections, established that in certain cases there must be an equal number of men and women candidates, and in others that this male/female parity must apply to the outcome of elections.

Five millions of electors, constituted into primary assemblies, were to prepare a _municipal_ list of 500,000 elected who in their turn were entrusted with the formation of a _departmental_ list of 50,000 names.
The Great Elector, without actively interfering in the government, furnished with a civil list of six millions, and magnificently housed by the state, appointed the two councils of peace and war, upon whom depended the ministers and all the administrative _personnel_ of prefects and sub- prefects entrusted with the government of the departments.
The abstract principles of justice were no longer thought of by men in general: the desire for permanent freedom had given place to the longing for rest and quiet, and all were pleased with the energy which the government had shown against disturbers of the peace; and the oppressive laws being modified, prosperity was reappearing.

 A Residence in France During the Years 1792, 1793, 1794 and 1795   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)

The unrestrained pillage of the conquered countries has not saved France from multiplied bankruptcies, nor her state-creditors from dying through want; and the French, in the midst of their external prosperity, are often distinguished from the people whom their armies have been subjugated, only by a superior degree of wretchedness, and a more irregular despotism.

In England and France, and to a degree in Germany, there was a consensus that this should be the eldest son-totality of power and wealth falling to the eldest is the rule of primogeniture.
When Charles IV of France (1322-28) died there was no designation, but choice of a king fell between two close relatives: Philip of Valois was the closest in the male line while Edward III of England (13-1377) who was related in the female line.
It was probably an aversion to the English claimant that led to the rule that the French crown could only be claimed by those in the male line and Philip VI of Valois (1328-50) succeeded though English royal house’s claim would last till the Treaty of Amiens of 1806.

 Voting in France - AngloINFO Normandy
The system used is a two-ballot majority list poll, but the methods applied depend on the population size of the commune:
In communes with fewer than 3,500 inhabitants, voting for candidates on different lists (vote-splitting) and deletion of names (preference voting) are allowed and votes are counted by candidate: you can place your mark at the name of the candidate you choose, but delete the name of one who you specifically do not want.
In communes with more than 3,500 inhabitants, the ballot paper must not be altered by the voter and any vote for a list on which names have been deleted is considered invalid, votes are counted by list and some seats are allocated proportionally.
