Disability and Society, vol. 25, 2010, p. 219-230

This paper aimed to describe the accomplishments, challenges and future directions of disabled women's advocacy organisations in Korea by interviewing a selection of their leaders. Since the sample size was just five women, the study is only indicative. Since the disabled women's movement started in the late 1990s, there have been significant gains in the social visibility of women with disabilities, the establishment of a gender-sensitive approach to forming disability policies, and the development of networks among disabled women's organisations.
