Women and disability: to put an end to this double penalty in work
In France, if you are a woman with a disability, the obstacles and discrimination in access to employment are even greater. In addition, the lack of official gendered data prevents an accurate study of the situation. Based on the recommendations of the reports "Women with Disabilities: Access to employment, Access to health care. Some truths.... "of the association Femmes pour le Dire, Femmes pour Agir (FDFA - 2014), and "L'accès à l'emploi des femmes en situation de handicap" (Défenseur des Droits - 2016), LADAPT and FDFA have decided to take action to raise awareness among the public, institutions, the economic world, the political class and the social partners. LADAPT organizes a reflection committee, the purpose of which is to produce a white paper.
10 months after the calls for tenders on supported employment, LADAPT wants to put a spotlight on this system and take a first step forward. The association continues its militant work for the extension of the legal framework of the conditions of access to the scheme, for real and sustainable access to the ordinary labour market for people with disabilities. Alternating and learning
As a first step towards sustainable access to employment for young and older people with disabilities.

Lucie, new face of EDEW 2018
When I was 15 years old, I had knee bone cancer and an infection caused by Staphylococcus aureus. I had half a leg amputated. During the illness, I met many people. That's when I clicked. I said to myself: I want to be able to be useful, to discover new medicines to treat people.
Lucie obtained her bachelor's degree in chemistry from the University of Bordeaux I and her master's degree in organic synthesis from the University of Paris-Sud XI in 2014. His work and thesis at the Institute of Natural Substance Chemistry focus on the development of new methods for the manufacture of environmentally friendly drugs.
This woman of science already has an idea of her future:
I will continue my career and do a research mission abroad, in the USA or in Europe. Then I will come back to France to realize my dream of being a research director.
A distinguished and brilliant career for Lucie Jarrige, who has not lost her Southern accent. A graduate of the Massy sports climbing club, she is the 2016 handi-climbing world champion in the "amputated leg" category.
