Au revoir, 'mère' and 'père'. The labels of 'mother' and 'father' have been removed from forms used in France's schools. France's National Assembly has made an amendment to the nation's School of Trust Bill which sees the term 'mother' and 'father' being replaced with 'Parent 1' and 'Parent 2'.

This new law is being hailed as a move designed to avoid discriminating against same-sex parents.
