ELLE’s editorial: safe bets

Obviously, we don’t know how each of us will feel when the composition of the new National Assembly is announced next Sunday. What is certain is that, after these extraordinary elections, there will be fears, doubts, and worries: who will govern with whom, who will keep (or not) what promises, where our values ​​will be, what will become of women’s rights, our country’s commitment to a Europe that has war on its doorstep…

How will we cope with this new face of France? What can we tell our children to reassure them about the future? We never talk about the mental burden generated by politics, and yet many of us have felt it in recent weeks.

If we have one piece of advice to give you, it is… to go and vote.

In three days, Sunday, July 7, 2024 at 8 p.m., democracy will have decided. And we will have to live with it, at least until the next election. So, just before, if we have one piece of advice to give you, it is… to go and vote. Neither the holding nor the stakes of this election could have escaped you and it is not too late to express yourself.

Given ELLE’s commitment, for 78 years, to women’s rights in the broadest sense, to the protection of minorities against division, withdrawal and discrimination, to the values ​​of progress, tolerance and freedom, you can imagine which way this newspaper’s heart does NOT lean. On Sunday, let’s take our share of responsibility, let’s not stand by and do nothing. To the polls, citizens!
