Abstract:
Disability is argued to have some relation to gender and culture. However much disability and gender research is based on data collected in the Global North, and little is known about disabled women in the Global South. This thesis therefore sets to explore how disabled women in Malaysia experience their lives. Malaysia is a multi-ethnic and multi-religious country located in the heart of South East Asia. It is now recognised as an upper-middle income country but was previously considered as a lower income country following its independence from Britain in 1957. Although the Malaysian government has developed significant disability provision, policies and legislations since the period of colonialism, disabled people still encounter major barriers in many aspects of their lives. More importantly research involving Malaysian disabled women is very limited and this study seeks to fill the gap.
