CRUZ PEREZ, María del Pilar. Mujeres con discapacidad y su derecho a la sexualidad. Polít. cult. [online]. 2004, n.22, pp.147-160. ISSN 0188-7742.

Although it is difficult to believe that disabled women have fewer possibilities to exercise their sexuality and reproductive rights than other women, society has unfortunately been slow to recognize this situation and, even though certain physical differences can impact the exercise of such practicers, with the support of trained personnel and social and professional attitudes that are free of prejudice and fear, this situation can be resolved with good results. Thus, the starting point is the idea that equal rights means that needs of every individual are equally important and that resources must be allocated to guarantee every person the same level of participation.

Keywords : gender; disability; sexual rights; reproductive rights; equality.
