A man married to a Frenchwoman has been refused French citizenship because of his “degrading attitude” toward women.

The Algerian man’s application for French nationality was turned down because “his idea of sexual equality is not that of the republic,” a high-ranking official told French radio station Europe 1, the Guardian reports.

The man – eligible for French nationality as he had been married to a French citizen for more than four years – did not allow his wife to leave the family home freely, it is claimed.
