Feminisation of names of professions is a set of linguistic processes consisting of explicating women's presence on the public stage. In this study, we refer to feminisation of terminology or creation of terms denoting feminine professions, titles, degrees and functions, without taking into account texts' feminisation. In French, female human beings are designated by feminine grammar pronouns, leading to male-female opposition representation with respect to the division of the sexes.
