Glasgow Disability Alliance’s Triple Whammy report showed that ‘For disabled women, the inequality, exclusion and discrimination already faced as a disabled person, and as a woman, have been triple-charged by the unequal impacts of Covid-19’.
The Scottish Women’s Budget Group have worked with members of Glasgow Disability Alliance to use gender budgeting tools to look at how these structural inequalities impact disabled women, how the current cost of living crisis is exacerbating theses inequalities and how the actions taken to address the crisis are impacting.
Between May and July 2023 SWBG & GDA carried out a survey with GDA members to identify how they were being impacted by rising costs. In total, 103 disabled women responded to the survey.
The findings show that disabled women continue to feel the strain of the situation created by the pandemic while simultaneously experiencing the unequal impact of the cost-of-living crisis
