The call had been issued by women's rights group Les Glorieuses, which has decided that enough is enough and that average wage disparity between men and women needs to be addressed in France.
Louise, a 26-year-old teacher, was symbolically handing out peanuts to passersby.
“Women are working for peanuts in France,” she told The Local. “It's not normal to be paid less than men for doing the same job.”
She said that women were hoping authorities in France would take notice and stop undervaluing women in the work place.
“I'm not angry but I'm looking for change,” she said.
