Women and girls with disabilities.

Using both - the gender and disability lens

Gender perspectives on disability and the disability perspective on the situation of women and girls with disabilities 

Women with disabilities face significantly more difficulties - in both public and private spheres - in attaining access to adequate housing, health, education, vocational training and employment, and are more likely to be institutionalized (see footnote 1).   They also experience inequality in  hiring, promotion rates and pay for equal work, access to training and retraining, credit and other productive resources, and rarely participate in economic decisionmaking (see footnote 2)
