Published by Ilya Smirnov
Women with disabilities face a double discrimination, both in terms of gender and also of their particular disability. For many women their most punishing disability is the attitude taken to them by society. This book examines the situation of women with various types of disability in the Middle Eastern context, and describes the evolution of Oxfam's perspective on working with disabled women. It provides a general overview of the concept of disability and includes several case studies from the Lebanon, Yemen, and the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Each chapter looks at specific aspects of the issue, and personal histories from disabled women and members of organizations for disabled people provide gripping testimony.
