Website for women with disabilities welcomed

A website dedicated to information about women with disabilities has been welcomed by Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch.

Made by women, for women, the site includes resources and information for all women with disability over the age of 15.

Ms Tesch said it was a huge step in the right direction.

"Every person with a disability struggles with different issues and overcomes different hurdles but a lot of overlapping issues experienced by women are often drowned out in the conversation," Ms Tesch said.

"It's clear there's even a gender gap in the disability sector with women making up less than 39 percent of people being supported by the National Disability Insurance Scheme."

Our Site has information on women's rights, leading and taking part in activities, life choices, safety and violence advice, body talk and real stories from women with disability, providing guidance through many lived experiences.

Ms Tesch said having someone to relate to was a helpful step on the road to better living.

"Women with disability don't have to go through these experiences alone.

"However, these stories are both heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time, revealing that there is still a lot of education to do," she said.

"It's heartbreaking because it's devastating to read about what these incredible women have had to endure and heartwarming because there is a light at the end of the tunnel and these stories will help other women realise that, too."
