Civil Code in France.

Napoleon held the Civil Code declared on March 21, which applied to all French people throughout the country. It dedicates the significant advances of the Revolution (freedom, property, secularism, abolition of the privileges of the Ancien RĂ©gime, etc.).

Except for the rights of women who do not enjoy the same rights as men. The Civil Code, which has since been extensively changed, remains the foundation of French civil law today.
