IG Live: Barriers and Opportunities for Disabled Women in U.S. Politics

This event centered around RepresentWomen’s 2021 report “Intersectional Disempowerment: Exploring Barriers for Disabled Female Political Candidates in the United States.” We discuss the barriers and opportunities disabled women, especially Latina and women of color, face when engaging in U.S. politics as candidates. Represent Women is a research and advocacy hub dedicated to strengthening our democracy by advancing reforms that break down barriers, ensuring more women can run, win, serve, and lead.
