Gulzar Duishenova / KYRGYZSTAN

Disability rights activist facing discrimination

Gulzar Duishenova is a fighter. In 2002, she lost movement in her legs after a car accident. She made it her life’s mission to ensure people with disabilities can live with dignity and move around freely. But she faces daily discrimination in a society where women aren’t meant to speak out and people with disabilities are seen as “invalids”.
