Right.. Because it's a masculine term.. like Prime Minister of England, which could be referring to a lady.. It's "première" for an event, like the first night of a film, the opening of the Opera or Theater Season and terms like "première chanteuse" (prima donna).. in these last being femenine.. traditionally chauvinistic in the first case..
