As they left the church in Saint-Epvre in Nancy after Sunday services. parishioners were confronted with a feminist manifestation taking place right in front of the steps of the church. The activists were shouting hate slogans and vulgarities towards the people leaving the church, including young children.

Parishioners reported being shouted at with insults, and humiliating references to the Catholic Church, Jesus Christ and the Virgin Marys. The demonstration was so aggressive that the police needed to monitor the procession until it ended. Source:  Link to photo
