There are more than half a billion
disabled women around the world. 4.5 million in Canada. For many, motherhood
is the key to fully being themselves.
Marie-Hélène, Soleine and Isabelle: like so many other women, they have borne life inside them. But their own lives have borne the impact of physical realities that have shaped their destinies. As women – and, more specifically, women with a disability, they have been relegated to the margins of society. But motherhood has given them licence to rewrite their own narrative and overcome the limits they never accepted as their own.
