Capucine Lemaire, president of the "Observatory of Disability Politics".

Capucine is the president of the Observatory of Disability Policies, an independent and unsubsidized NGO she founded in 2021.

In the same year, she initiated the unique and innovative project of an art and disability history museum, which will exist both in the real world and in the metaverse by 2028.

Before that, Capucine seamlessly transitioned between various disciplines, ranging from studies in philological and religious sciences to directing short films. She went from preparing for the entrance exam to the National School of Administration (ENA) to launching Women Side in 2014, an online media platform where she had the opportunity to interview Hillary Clinton in 2016.

She is also a writer for a variety of media outlets, including Forbes, L'Humanité, the Jean Jaurès Foundation, and the journal Sexualités Humaines. In her free time, she writes essays, novels, screenplays, and is working on a comic book project about disability in schools.

In addition to all of this, Capucine works as a consultant and speaker. In 2023, she became the director of the Institute of Philosophical Studies on Disability (IPSD).

She has been described as "unconventional" by Le Monde and "daring" by Marianne magazine. Her entrepreneurial efforts were recognized with the Woman Achiever Award in 2017 and the Feminine Talent Award in 2018.
