About this book
This book describes the experience of physical disability through detailed interviews with women of different ages, races and socio- economic backgrounds, and explores the impact of gender on the process of being or becoming disabled. It considers the significance of physical disability for a woman's self image and its impact on her sexuality, relationships, marriage and childrearing. The extent to which inadequate provision for disability makes a woman dependent is also examined, as is the way in which women with disabilities have been rendered invisible.
