Women with Disabilities: Issues, Resources, Connections.
This four-part information package serves as an introduction to the lives of women and girls with disabilities and the social issues they specifically face. Part I comprises a paper which reviews the literature and major issues, titled "Obstacles to Equality: The Double Discrimination of Women with Disabilities." The paper examines three major areas of life, namely, reproduction and nuturing, education, and employment, and analyzes how women with disabilities fare within these areas compared to women without disabilities and men with disabilities. Part II is an annotated bibliography citing articles, journals, books, and other resources written by and/or about women and girls with disabilities and categorized as follows: general issues, life histories and personal accounts, education, employment and rehabilitation, health issues, motherhood and reproductive rights, sexuality and sexual abuse, and fiction. Part III presents an annotated listing of resources and teaching materials about women and girls with disabilities, including organizations that offer consultation and training on related issues. Part IV, titled "Building Connections," provides information about locating services and support groups for women and girls with disabilities, starting networking projects, and locating periodicals and organizations that include women with disabilities.
