This paper presents a research proposal to study the subject of women, disability and sexuality and how society responds to women who are noticeably physically disabled and also those whose disabilities are not observable.The paper questions how women suffering noticeable and unobserved disabilities express themselves sexually and whether stereotypical images of "the ideal woman" impact a woman's disability beyond the physicality of that disability. In researching the topic and seeking answers to these questions the paper relies upon existing studies and research to reach conclusions and an understanding of the subject matter.

The Ideal Woman
Women and Reproductive Disabilities: The Inside Perspective
Physically Observable Disability and Women's Sexuality
Expressions of Women's Sexuality When Disabled
