In my PhD project, I aim to explore perceptions of physically disabled women in interaction to the social world. The research focuses to find out, how does ‘social experiences’ of disabled women interact in the process of identity formation? How do they negotiate with the ‚disability‘ in the society where gender is an ability based concept and being ‚abled‘ is the greatest norm to achieved to claim ‚womanhood‘ and get social acceptance. In undertaking this research, a qualitative approach involving biographical narrative technique has been adopted to record the experiences of 20 physically disabled women, aged between 18-42 years, from Lahore city in Pakistan.
