Empowerment through Participation in Vietnam:

A Personal Experience of Taking Back the Pride of Disability

  • Linh Thuy Dang Student

Abstract

This paper presents my experiences as a young women with disabilities engaging with a research project “Transforming Disability Knowledge, Research, and Activism” (TDKRA) - a collaborative research project that aims to tackle these challenges of disability research and activism in Vietnam (Stienstra and Nguyen, 2019). It illustrates the lessons I learned about disability knowledge, activism, and other girls and women with disabilities in Vietnam through my participation in TDKRA.  From my perspective, I assess the effective of participatory visual methodologies and arts-based research on fostering girls and women with disabilities to get out of a silent zone to speak out their unheard stories.
