Poster – ‘Disabled Women at Work’

This poster was part of the Disabled Women’s Positive Image Programme – Date Unknown.

This scheme sought to overcome negative and damaging perceptions of disabled women. For instance, this image highlights how disabled women can work, thus undermining the negative stereotype of disabled women as passive and helpless.

The programme worked with various other organisations including Leeds Inter-Agency Project (Women & Violence) and Leeds Centre for Integrated Living.
