The Null Device
As gender relations in France come up for examination (
), the French government has moved to
deprecate the honorific “Mademoiselle” ("miss") from official forms
. As French has no equivalent of “Ms.”, “Madame”, which until now referred exclusively to married women, will refer to women of any marital status, allowing women to avoid disclosing their marital status.
