After Marion Cotillard won the Oscar and Carla Bruni won the president of France, I thought maybe we'd get a rest from high-flying "French" women. (Carla is actually Italian.) But then I read that Mireille Guiliano had deserted her Knopf publishers for Atria Books. (Both Page Six and Gawker.com reviled the writer, saying she'd been a terrible boss when she ruled Veuve Clicquot Inc. as CEO.) Well, never mind. This dame has written two best-sellers - French Women for All Seasons and the celebrated diet-dream book French Women Don't Get Fat. Now, for Atria Publishing, she'll discuss sharing strategies, lessons learned and give practical advice to women seeking balance, success and workplace satisfaction.

Never mind the strained relations between the United States and France these past couple of years. Mireille Guiliano, president and chief executive officer of Clicquot Inc., who was born and raised in France but now lives in New York, is trying to do her part to improve international cooperation. Her contribution, besides overseeing the importation of Veuve Clicquot champagne, is a new book, French Women Don't Get Fat: The Secret of Eating for Pleasure (Alfred A. Knopf, 2005, $22). Written at the prompting of friends who for years urged her to reveal her secrets for staying thin, the book, she says, is her way of helping out her adopted country.

Ladies and gentlemen, choose your dietary weapons. Would you prefer to eat Southern fried chicken and shrimp creole for breakfast while supping on shredded wheat? If so, see The Reverse Diet by Tricia Cunningham and Heide Skolnik. Or perhaps you're ready to ditch that regimen Francaise (French Women Don't Get Fat) and go eastward with Japanese Women Don't Get Old or Fat by Naomi Moriyama and William Doyle. (The authors say that Japanese women have the lowest rate of obesity in the developed world: 3 percent, compared with 11 percent for French women and 34 percent for American women.

BOSTON -- It's been stuck on the tarmac for so long that by now RU-486 sounds like the flight number of a plane taken hostage. And that's not far from the truth. RU-486, otherwise known as mifepristone, is the drug developed back in the 1980s by a French doctor so women could choose a non-surgical abortion very privately and very early in pregnancy. In the past dozen years, 500,000 French women have used it safely and effectively. It's been distributed to 20 other countries ranging from the United Kingdom and Finland to Greece and Israel.
