Women's IssuesWhy This Is Important
While there is no question that women with and without disabilities share many things in common, there is no doubt that they face situations in their daily lives that their nondisabled counterparts do not.
This department will feature products and/or information specific to women who have physical and/or intellectual disabilities. Topics include employment, health care-both in terms of relief of illness or disease, and healthcare-the system. Relationships, life style choices, activities of daily living, etc. are important issues in everyone’s life. However, for women with disabilities there are also concerns about more than that: accessibility, in terms of architecture and attitude, awareness about disability as a concept in society, the integration of that concept into the existing system, understanding the importance of putting the person first etc. Certainly the disability will be acknowledged and accommodated as well as possible. However, in this department, we will put the person and the woman above all else.
