Abstract

The fluidity of disability, and impairment emerges through a series of interviews developed with, and involving, forty women in Scotland and Canada.  Their educational experiences are explored. The voices of women with disabilities in this article are important, and what appears are rich contextual profiles of women making spaces on their own terms.
