It is within the framework of the citizen contract and its proactive gender equality policy that the Municipality of Quimper (in collaboration with Quimper Bretagne Occidentale, Region, Department and Caf) has decided to carry out an action with the inhabitants of Kermoysan. “Women who reside in priority neighborhoods more often encounter difficulties in professional integration, recalls Alain Decourchelle, vice president of QBO. They are in fact less present on the labor market and the activity rate of women is 16.2 points lower than that of men “.
“In Kermoysan, continues Claude Le Brun, deputy head of the Penhars district, 43.9% of women aged 15 to 64 work, against 61.8% in the QBO sector. Our question was “How to accompany them towards employment?” “”. The occupational actors present in the district have mobilized to give answers to these inequalities.

Open for free until April 8 in the reception hall of the MPT de Penhars, the exhibition “Quimperoise, beyond the clichés” consists of about thirty portraits and snapshots of Quimper women, true testimonies of female emancipation and the living conditions of a another era. “These photos were taken between 1890 and 1950, explains Bruno Le Gall of the Municipal Archives.
