gender agreement

Hi,

In the example of “Toutes les fins de semaine, nous allons nager.”, was toutes les agreeing with fins de semaine (feminine phrase), or with nous (a group of female swimmers)?


Thank you for clarifying!

The agreement is of  “Toutes” with “les fins …” as “fin” is feminine. In this case, semaine also feminine, but that does not affect the gender agreement. For instance, it could have been “Toutes les fins de mois …” - mois being masculine.
