A number of leading French feminists are condemning President Emmanuel Macron's public defense of actor Gerard Depardieu, who is under investigation for accusations of sexual assault and harassment by 13 women dating back several years. Macron has said that the actor is the victim of a "manhunt" and should not have the French Legion of Honour medal withdrawn from him. Depardieu has denied all the accusations against him.
