Abstract

Infertile women in the developing world face an additional layer of vulnerability compared to their counterparts in the developed world due to social, cultural, political, and socioeconomic factors that truly render their infertility a disability. After exploring how infertility in the developing world fits the World Health Organization's biopsychosocial model of disability, we will argue that feminists and disability rights proponents should jointly articulate and advocate for change.
