Woman with Freckles

March Exhibition

WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH

for disabled women

 

I-CREATE YOUTH is curating monthly exhibitions to celebrate disabled individuals. In commemoration of Women's History Month in March, we showcase distinguished women who have transformed how they, and their societies, view disability. The disabled community is one of the most diverse and largest communities in the world, and we hope that you will find unity and inspiration in learning about the experiences of both historical and contemporary disabled women in politics, science & technology, literature, athletics, and more.

Click the respective headings to learn more about disabled women who have done and are doing revolutionary work. If you require accessibility features such as alt text, transcript, or audio, please let us know on our contacts page.
