Intersectional discrimination against women and girls with disabilities in educational opportunities in India

World Development Perspectives, 2022, vol. 26, issue C

Abstract: Women and girls with disabilities are one of the world’s most marginalized sections of society. They face various forms of discrimination in their daily life and are often excluded from social and political participation. However, there is very little evidence that addresses the intersectional marginalization of women and girls with disabilities, especially in developing countries. This study empirically investigates possible intersectional discrimination against women and girls with disabilities in educational opportunities in India.
