    As a student in International Law and Political Science, I’ve been brainwashed with the importance of the Rule of law as a barrier to the arbitrary exercise of power, and I must admit that I really did believe in it. The Rule of law is a principle of governance in which all persons, institutions and entities are equally accountable to laws that are publicly promulgated, equally enforced and independently adjudicated, I was taught throughout my ten-year-long studies. Now I’m involved in a political sex scandal, I can assert that the Rule of law is disturbingly, substantially malleable in France, especially when it comes to the idea of equality before the law. I’m glad I was able to confront this reality before I finish my studies: from an intellectual student, I now have the opportunity to become an intelligent woman.
