France has named a Jewish woman as its new culture minister.

Audrey Azoulay was named last week during a Cabinet reshuffle.

She is the daughter of Andre Azoulay, an adviser to Moroccan King Mohammed VI, and writer Katia Brami. She is a native of Morocco.

In 2014, Azoulay, 43, was named culture and communications adviser to President Francois Hollande, after serving as a civil administrator and in leadership positions in France’s National Center of Cinema.
