"She Dances to Different Drums - Research into disabled women's sexuality" - Kath Gillespie Sells

Little research has been undertaken into disabled women's sexuality. What there is has been carried out largely by non- disabled professionals. It is not surprising then that disabled women's sexuality remains a controversial subject capable of provoking extreme reaction, misunderstanding and prejudice.
This study tells the stories of many disabled women. Some are painfull and distressing, concerning sexual abuse and damaging isolation. Others are funny and uplifting. All dispell the myth that disabled women are asexual and have and have no interest in forging sexual and personal relationships.
Funded by the King's Fund grant, the study identifies the key issues for disabled women who are black, lesbian or heterosexual. As well as discussing the many barriers that disabled women face, the authors highlight key recommendations to take the research and to improve the lives of disabled women everywhere.
