Center for Research on Women with Disabilities

The Center for Research on Women with Disabilities (CROWD) is a research center that focuses on issues related to health, aging, civil rights, abuse, and independent living. CROWD`s purpose is to promote, develop, and disseminate information to expand the life choices of women with disabilities so that they may fully participate in community life. More specifically, researchers develop and evaluate models for interventions to address specific problems effecting women with disabilities.

Women with disabilities are often at a double disadvantage. They sometimes face discrimination against both their gender and their disability. Fortunately, there are organizations and resources to help raise awareness and overcome this. Being a woman with a disability is not just about experiencing discrimination - it`s also about being proud of who you are, and celebrating your identity.

Feminist Majority Foundation

Women with disabilities face double discrimination--discrimination based on gender and discrimination based disability. Women of color who are disabled face yet a third type of discrimination...The limited available statistics suggest that economically, socially, and psychologically, women with disabilities fare considerably worse than either women who are nondisabled or men who are disabled. (Women and Disability Awareness Project, 1989).
