Learn the situation of Deaf and disabled women around the world. And read some ideas for how women with disabilities can change society. This resource kit is old: people will want to consult more recent publications for updated statistics. But many of the challenges that it describes are broadly the same today as in 1995. 

The resource kit also describes some general strategies for change. Trainers who teach new leaders will want to supplement this with concrete examples from real life that are relevant for Deaf women. Otherwise, more experienced leaders can use the resource in conversations on improving the advocacy strategies they use.

People can download this guide in either PDF, RTF, or Word format. The PDF file is partly accessible for people using screen reading software with some difficulty with navigation. We were unable to assess whether the Word or RTF files are accessible.

DAA published this resource kit as part of a series of seven resource kits for disability rights advocacy organizations. Their other resource kits cover topics such as changing society and changing laws, working with the media, and raising funds.
