Overview

Women with disabilities face a double discrimination, both in terms of gender and also of their particular disability. This book examines the situation of women with various types of disability, in the Middle Eastern context. It provides a general overview of gender and disability and includes several case studies from the Lebanon, Yemen, and the occupied Palestinian Territories. Each case study features personal histories from disabled women and members of organisations for disabled people, to highlight particular issues concerning gender and disability.
