Abstract

This paper analyzes the issue of women with disabilities. The underpinning argument is that this oppression, and how it is experienced, must be seen in the light of both ableism and sexism, since neither alone provides a sufficient explanatory basis. The way this oppression is experienced in the area of work is illustrated in relation to employment, incomes, and housework. The related areas of legislative and social policy areas are also briefly considered. Implications and directions for policy formulation are explored.
