This report demonstrates how women with disabilities encounter difficulties and discrimination in access to employment and in their careers because they are women, because they are handicapped, but they also encounter inequalities and specific discriminations combining gender and disability. Thus, the report proposes several recommendations, including the understanding of the disabled population, especially women with disabilities; visibility of women with disabilities and the fight against stereotypes; the access to schooling and higher education; and the access to employment and careers for women with disabilities.
