Évelyne Thomas (born January 10, 1964) was the hostess of the French talk show C'est mon choix (It's my choice).[1]

In 2003 she was controversially chosen as the new Marianne. The town mayors who elect her went for a populist choice, which was at odds with the views of the Parisian intelligentsia.[1] This was compounded by her stating that, while she was in favour of liberty and fraternity, she opposed equality, which implied making everyone the same. See Liberté, égalité, fraternité.
