Freedom of expression is a right in France. We can find at the Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen rules of the 1789 in Article 11 that says "every citizen may speak, write and print with freedom, but shall be responsible for such abuses of this freedom as shall be defined by law". Without press freedom there can be no democracy, but winning this freedom in France was complicated. After the French Revolution of 1789, authoritarian and liberal regimes alternated and it was not until the Law of 29 July 1881 that the principle of a free press was permanently established. This law finished with all kinds of obstacles to free expression (prior authorization, deposit of security bonds, stamps, etc.) and allowed the press to publish with fewer risks of prosecution. A flood of new titles ensued.

In France the legislation has been approved to protect the individual, guarantee public order and ensure the independence and status of journalists. This is the legal basis on which the press operates in France today. At the end of 1997, there were approximately 30,000 journalists in possession of an official press card in France, 37.5% of whom were women and over half under 40 years old.
