Disability In The Society

We find that the disabled people are facing a lot of obstacles in their efforts of trying to fight for equality. This is a reality that has not been given enough audience even with the many claims of fighting for inclusion by the many existing disability movements. The disabled people’s organizations have also not been so pushy about the real issues of persons with disabilities. Although both disabled men and disabled women face discrimination in the society where they live, the women and girls with disabilities face a lot more of the discrimination as compared to the disabled men. The disabled female face double discrimination which comes from both gender and disability. Here, there is an effort to come up with the clear picture of the lives of women with disabilities; there will be an exploration of the discrimination the face as women as well as disabled persons.

There is a hidden fact that women with disabilities have been neglected by the disability field, and they have also been left out by the feminist movements. This can be well confirmed by what we see has been written in the past decades from now. When you compare the lives of women with disabilities and that of women without disabilities as well as that of men with disabilities, you will find that women with disabilities face a lot more discrimination and they are more disadvantaged. The discrimination that women with disabilities face are seen to have an origin in three main areas, which are; the traditional female area, the education sphere and employment area. Most of the aims of people to bring about mainstreaming talks about inclusion of persons with disabilities but when the outcomes are well analyzed, you find that the favour men with disabilities only leaving out women and girls with disabilities.

tafmona unfortunately this is too often the case where this kind of discrimination exists. Perhaps if others speak and write about it the matter can be addressed in a way that gives equality to both sexes. Very good article.
