Report of the Special Rapporteur on violence against women, A/67/227, 3 August 2012
III. REPORT ON VIOLENCE AGAINS WOMEN WITH DISABILITIES
B. Social model understanding of violence against women with disabilities
27. Lesbians and other sexual minorities who identify as female and who have disabilities confront social barriers, isolation, exclusion and violence due to both sexual minority status and disability. Lesbians with psychosocial disabilities have been largely excluded or overlooked in research and treatment, despite their usage of mental health-care and other psychosocial services. They sometimes experience a “cultural contradiction” imposed by society since lesbianism is viewed as a sexual identity, while women with disabilities are often stereotyped as asexual.
