People with Disability due to Neurological Conditions at the Third Level of Attention

Georgina Volkers Gaussman, Claudia García Pastrana


Disability is an important factor of discrimination and when combined with matters of gender, we find that women with disabilities face double discrimination which places them in an unequal position in relation to the general public and specifically to men with disabilities. Therefore, this article, following a deep analysis of
the disability-gender pairing, as variables to be taken into account due to the double discrimination for women with disabilities, will explore the various policies carried out at the international, European and national level, pursuing a triple classification: Policies for people with disabilities; Policies of equal opportunities for women and men (with or without disabilities) and Policies for women with disabilities.
