Uncut Curbs and Other Obstacles: Mothers with Disabilities (1996)

Women's Education des femmes, Summer 1996 - Vol. 12, No. 2

The Health and Limitation Survey reports that the number of people reporting a disability is on the increase. Although the population of Canada has since grown, according to the 1991 Canadian Census there were 4.1 million adults living in Canada with disabilities, 2.3 million of whom were of working age (16-64), and women were more likely than men to have a disability.

This article discusses the barriers faced by people with disabilities which are not only physical, as in access to buildings, but attitudinal. Attitudinal barriers create other barriers which prevent accommodation from happening and in turn set up a blockade to independence.
