Women with Disabilities: Executive Summary
This project looks at the status of women with disability in four states of the country; Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Orissa and West Bengal. Women with Disability represent a confluence of two divides in the society; gender and disability. While each of the divides has been studied independently, if not in isolation, the two have rarely been studied together .The report first traces the contours of the available demographic data form the 2001 census on the population of persons with disability in the country as a whole. A mapping of the incidence of disability indicated various clusters of low and high incidence. While the low incidence clusters may need a further cross check in terms of the quality and completeness of reporting, the clusters of high incidence definitely call for programme intervention.
