To mark International Women’s Day, #IWD2022, GDA has launched it’s report into disabled women’s lived experiences of covid-19: Triple Whammy – disabled women’s lived experiences of covid-19.
GDA’s extensive engagement of disabled women over the last 2 years via 16 targeted events, tracking 131 specific women over the pandemic and mining data from speaking to thousands more. “Triple Whammy” outlines that COVID-19 has disproportionately impacted on disabled women, in comparison to both their male disabled peers, and non-disabled women. These inequalities have been supercharged during the global pandemic and related crisis, creating a “triple whammy” of barriers arising from being a disabled person, a woman, and facing Covid-19 challenges.
