Balkany made international news when on July 17, 2012, just days before the vote on a new national sexual harassment bill, male lawmakers in the National Assembly including Balkany hooted and made catcalls as Housing Minister Cécile Duflot, wearing a floral dress, spoke about an architecture project.
“We were just admiring her,” Patrick Balkany, a conservative legislator, told Le Figaro.
