9780887380174: Women and Disability: The Double Handicap

The special needs of women with disabilities have been disregarded in a wide variety of vital areas.  Issues pertain to women as wives and mothers.  Studies of the effects on female sexuality of such conditions as renal disease and diabetes are lacking, though the sexual functioning of men with these diseases has been researched.  On the economic front, the Federal-State Vocational Rehabilitation system and the regulations concerning disability benefits under Social Security provide less adequately for women than for men. Hopefully, this volume will raise the consciousness of its readers to the special status of women with disabilities as a minority group experiences multiple sources of discriminations.
