POLITICS – Joséphine Baker’s entry into the Pantheon, hailed, also revived discussions on that of Gisèle Halimi, claimed by part of the political and associative class so far without success. Without advancing on this specific point, Emmanuel Macron announced this Monday, August 23 that a national tribute will be paid to the lawyer “early 2022”.

“In agreement with her family, the Nation will pay tribute to Gisèle Halimi in early 2022 at the Invalides,” said Emmanuel Macron in a tweet, highlighting the commitment of the Franco-Tunisian lawyer for equality, especially between women and men.

The pantheonization of Gisèle Halimi has been demanded since her death in July 2020 by feminist associations and many political figures including, since her arrival in government, by the Minister for Equality between Women and Men. Also, after that of Joséphine Baker, certain personalities, in particular the deputy Aurélien Taché (ex-LREM) had taken the opportunity to recall the request in favor of the lawyer.

But the discussions have so far not succeeded, because of the commitment of Gisèle Halimi against the war in Algeria and for the independence of this country, likely to “divide” society.

Last May, a source close to the executive told AFP that “the reflection was underway” on the entry into the Pantheon of the lawyer. “It’s a decision that requires many stakeholders to be consulted. With the actors, witnesses or custodians of all the fights in which Gisèle Halimi is involved ”, it was said. A way of recognizing that the subject is sensitive without closing the door to a favorable outcome.
