WATCH: The nightmare of a society ruled by women

With its Youtube views up to seven million, this short film from French film-maker and feminist Eleonore Pourriot about life for men in a society ruled by women has had a huge impact around the world.

It tells the story of Pierre, a man whose body is first objectified by the dominant women and then violated when he falls victim to a sexual assault.

He then finds himself questioned by a disbelieving police officer (female, of course) before his "masculinist" views are rejected by his unsympathetic spouse.

It's a devastating exercise in gender-reversal - and one which Pourriot says has already attracted the kind of condemnation from men she's summing up in the film.

That, she says, is only making her feel like the film was worth making.
