A French Film, Majorité Opprimée, dubbed Oppressed Majority, with English subtitles has clocked close to 2.75 million views in less than a week since being released on YouTube.

The 10-minute film tells the story of Pierre, an ordinary guy, on an ordinary day, in an unnamed French town, ruled by women.

The film was made five years ago by Eléonore Pourriat—who's now working on her next project, a mockumentary about the removal of pubic hair— and won an award at a festival in Kiev but had little impact in France, until the English subtitled release last week on YouTube.

Eléonore Pourriat tells the Guardian:

"So often when women get assaulted, people say it's their fault. Even close people. That's what I wanted to say..." She says that the film "came from a personal experience. I was a woman. I was 30 years old. And my husband didn't believe that I was – I was not assaulted, but I got remarked on in the street. Very often. He said, 'Wow. That's incredible.' His surprise was the beginning of the idea for me. Sometimes men – it's not their fault – they don't imagine that women are assaulted even with words every day, with small, slight words. They can't imagine that because they are not confronted with that themselves."
