The Social Construction of Deaf Women, The (1996)

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

In this article, the author talks about how the "Deaf" are referred to without gender. Her research indicates that Deaf adults, in particular Deaf women, identify more strongly with being Deaf than with being female. However, they are still women. Men and women, deaf or not, experience differential outcomes and may have different needs which are not met by an educational system intended to "treat" their deafness.
