Mobility Issues Reduce Women’s Accessibility To A Secure Future

Posted on - in intersectional feminism

When I went with my boyfriend to renew his Saint Lucian passport in downtown Castries, we climbed five flights of stairs to get to the top. Taking the elevator would have still left us with one or two flights of stairs to get to the office where passports are issued. Public buildings in Saint Lucia still leave a lot to be desired when it comes to accessibility. If it isn’t ramps¬†positioned at 75 degree angles, it’s a lack of elevators or proper accommodations for physically disabled people.
