The Italian case at the intersection of gender and disability Women, disability and social participation

Cinzia Leone

Abstract


This paper arises from the need to research the topic of women with disabilities from a sociological point of view regarding in particular their opportunities, feelings and attitudes towards social interactions and relationships, access to culture and other identified leisure activities. The European Horizon 2020 RISEWISE - RISE Women in Social Engagement project offered the chance to enlarge and deepen this investigation at European level. With this quantitative review, data will demonstrate that the quality of life of women with disabilities is slightly lower than the quality of life of men with disabilities and than men and women collectively in general and thus influencing the entire life course, also affecting health, sociality, education, economic conditions and other aspects.

Keywords: gender, women, disability, inclusion, accessibility.
