With her question to Macron, young Laura galvanized activists against sexual violence

The release of speech, “I accompanied her and I will continue to accompany her, to protect her”, replied Emmanuel Macron to the young woman. “At the same time, to function in society you must have the presumption of innocence.”

Emmanuel Macron’s response did not convince Laura, who said she had herself been the victim of sexual assault, nor Internet users. This Saturday, the web ignited and gave massive support to Laura for having dared to challenge the President of the Republic… and received the visit of the gendarmes to his high school. At the time his lines are written, this Saturday afternoon, more than 26,000 messages have been posted on Twitter under the hashtags #LaQuestionDeLaura and #SupportLaura.

Thousands of messages of support

The founder of the association Osez le féminisme Caroline de Haas, the journalist and writer Florence Porcel, environmentalist senator Mélanie Vogel, as well as many anonymous people grabbed their keyboards to question Emmanuel Macron in turn. “We are going to repeat it, Laura’s polite, factual and public interest question”, comments Florence Porcel. Mockery, some specify that they refuse an answer in the form of a visit from the gendarmerie.

The reserve period in this weekend of legislative elections limits the reactions of leading political figures or candidates for deputy. Jean-Luc Mélenchon nevertheless expressed his indignation on Twitter on Friday evening. On the executive side too, silence is in order. It remains to be seen whether Internet users will get an answer after the second round of the elections, on June 19.
