Impaired Bodies, Gendered Lives: Everyday Realities of Disabled women

 
Nandini Ghosh (Author)
Synopsis

This book explores the intersections of gender and disability. Situating disabled women in their local contexts and using an ethnographic approach, it provides a review of empirical literature on disabled women, both globally and in India. It seeks, hence, to illustrate how globally gendered structures influence practices of gender and ability in specific communities. The lives of disabled women remain entrenched in gendered regimes within families, communities and public spaces, though the agency demonstrated by these women in defining themselves as women and negotiating gendered spaces is remarkable. Keeping this in mind, this book steers a balance between a sound academic understanding of the issues of gender and disability and the involved care of a feminist disability activist.
