Zubeida has a radiant smile. She’s a petite, cheerful and loving mother and wife.
But to many, she is seen as worthless. When she walks down the street, she is met with mockery and stares. She has been told that her life isn’t worth living, that she would never amount to anything.
“This hurts my heart very, very much,” she says.
Zubeida is one of millions of women with disabilities across India, women who often experience mental and physical abuse. Some are called names or beaten; others are sexually violated.
