Disabled Lesbians vs Ableism and Capitalism

Room Kurmajan Datka

In a number of European and Central Asian countries there still is a systemic discrimination of disabled persons. What can we, then, say about disabled lesbians? They are discriminated against because they are women, they are lesbians, they are disabled and also they are very often poor. At the workshop we will focus on main mechanisms of oppression, address the reasons why those mechanisms exist, examine existing range of rights that disabled lesbians have and set milestones for resistance against the capitalist system of institutionalized ableism.
