Disabled Women’s Network of Canada (DAWN)


DAWN-RAFH Canada was founded in 1985 following a meeting between seventeen women from across Canada who came together to discuss issues of mutual concern. In a society which devalues and often punishes difference of any kind, women with disabilities face many barriers. If we are aboriginal women, lesbians, older women or women of colour we encounter even more discrimination and more barriers.

The website provides resources specifically for women with disabilities on issues such as poverty, mothering, housing, and violence.
