Colectiva Polimorfas is a collective of women with ‘functional diversity’. They choose this language because they believe that the word ‘disability’ is stigmatising and suggests a lack of capacity. They recognise a diversity of ways in which people function and reject seeing this diversity as ‘disability’.
They work to make visible the violence that women with functional diversity face and collectively organise to resist this violence. The collective works at the nexus of disability and sexuality rights by ensuring that the sexual and reproductive rights of women with functional diversity are protected and fulfilled.
