Celebrating Brilliant & Resilient Women with Disabilities on IWD

A group of women with disabilities from different countries singing
As disabled women activists around the world celebrate International Women’s Day in different ways, we acknowledge their tireless efforts in promoting inclusion and defending human rights.

International Women’s Day (IWD) is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change, and to celebrate women’s achievements. Thank you, disabled women activists and allies, for being “Loud, Proud and Passionate!®

In honor of this day, we invite you to read an excerpt from our book, Brilliant & Resilient: Celebrating the Power of Disabled Women Activists. The Brilliant & Resilient project features a collection of photographs and personal stories of 50 women with different types of disabilities representing 41 countries. Read Teuta’s story.

Also, be sure to follow MIUSA on social media throughout the day on March 8th, as we highlight the IWD actions of MIUSA alumni!

Join us in revolutionizing the status of women with disabilities. Support MIUSA’s women’s leadership programs.
