Men with disabilities may have serious employment issues, but on the other hand, it is even worse for disabled women. This is seen to women with any type of disability. Men with disabilities are almost twice as likely to have jobs than women with disabilities. It is also seen that the disabled women are more poor when compared to the disabled women. This is due to them being unemployed and also being poorly paid when they get jobs.
The reasons as to why disabled women may be seen to be having unequal access to education varies with a number of reasons. The disabled women may find it hard or rather they may not have been well considered by the rehabilitation programmes. And even if disabled women are rehabilitated, then they are well rehabilitated in part time jobs and not professional positions. And this is still a sign of gender based discrimination faced by the disabled women. Disabled women are faced with a double danger in their lives, they are discriminated for being women and also for having disability. The stereotypes that are attached to the disabled people and to the women are felt more by the disabled women than the disabled men. These are made in a way to express disabled women as passive, dependent, helpless and failures.
These are the attitudes that are in the general public and also in the rehabilitation centres. This has resulted in disabled women being less likely to access or even to be referred to vocational trainings. This makes disabled women to lack proper training hence poor rehabilitation into employment.
