the Women with disAbilities Discussion List
We are comprised of Women representing a diversity of disAbilities and backgrounds from different regions, provinces and countries.
We ask that you RESPECT each other...when you give respect you gain respect
Please, No Spam and No Advertisements... No vulgar and obscene language, No deliberate slander toward other members...simply put, attempt to do no harm and assume GOODWILL.
The List was created as an initiative of DAWN (DisAbled Women's Network) Ontario, a cross-disability organization working towards access, equity, and full participation of Women with disAbilities through public education, coalition-building, self-advocacy and resource development.
Recognizing the value of online communities, DAWN Ontario is seeking to help build such a Community for Women with disAbilities, including advocates, activists and self-advocates.
Part of our
Action Plan for 2001 will be to use the Internet to assist in building
communities for self-advocates, along with re-developing our
website to provide accurate and accessible information that will
benefit the diversity of Women with disAbilities that we serve.
