In Kyrgyzstan where often, women are not meant to speak out and persons with disabilities are labelled as “invalids” and “diseased”, Gulzar keeps on fighting for her dignity.
Gulzar Duishenova is a Kyrgyzstani woman with a disability, who lives in a society where persons with disabilities face daily discrimination. One of these forms of discrimination is accessibility; from going to the doctor, to getting on public transport.
But Gulzar is fighting to change this. She has made it her life’s mission to ensure that persons with disabilities can live in dignity. The accessibility issues she faces have only strengthened her resolve to demand a better life for herself and others.
