  • 2. Statistics on Women with Disabilities • 20% of U.S. women have some kind of disability • 2.5 times as many as women without disabilities live in poverty • More likely to have insurance, but less likely to utilize it • Abuse tends to be more frequent, longer and by more people, and includes neglect and withholding of assistive devices and medicine • Less opportunities to escape abuse due to lack of knowledge and outreach by professionals • Seen as asexual, or as a fetish • Isolation due to lack of knowledge, even among disability and feminist communities
  • 3. What We Bring • Opportunity to experience the cycle of caretaker and care receiver at a younger age • Ability see our own and perhaps other bodies as unique and powerful • Can sexualize our bodies if we choose, even against dominant voices in society • Can become successful mothers and partners despite being told it is impossible
