In this article, the author contends that for the majority women with disabilities, higher education may become even more difficult to attain in the future. This is due to the present down sliding and transforming economy, as well as the effects of combined and ongoing sexism and ableism. Women with disabilities who do reach graduate and post graduate degrees may find that their outcome is not on par with non-disabled women or men with disabilities. Without higher education and degrees, people with disabilities will likely be worse off.
