Working in partnership with a professional theatre company, The Young Women and Theatre project used drama and film as a way to explore the issues faced by 140 young women, including disabled women, women with learning disabilities and women who were not disabled. The need for the project came out of our work with young disabled women where they told us that people see their disability first and forget they are primarily young women. Using both drama and film, the young women produced a series of sketches and a final film in the style of a news report, to highlight their experiences and emphasise the need to see beyond disability and recognise they are young women first.
