Beyond Access is our qualitative research where we explored how women and queer persons with disabilities used the internet as a platform to express themselves sexually and to provide readers with a deeper understanding of the challenges and risks associated with their internet usage. This research looks at the complex layers of discrimination and marginalization that lead to women with disabilities being ignored, often even within their broader groups of marginalization i.e. women, queer, as well as disabled people.
This study is a glimpse into the lives of women activists with disabilities who are living with multiple deprivations given Nepal’s structural injustices. This report includes diverse narratives of ways in which disability rights advocates are using the internet, whether in their personal lives, to explore and express their sexuality, or for their activism. We aim to shine a light on individuals who have been ignored in mainstream discourses on women’s rights movements, sexual rights movements, and conversations around technology.
