stories from differently abled women

Here at HerStory we know that  all women have a story to tell. All of our lives are different. We've all had different experiences. But our stories are what connect us, what help us understand one another. 

During the month of May we are collecting stories from differently abled women. We want to shine a light on your experiences and your stories. 

We are defining differently abled very broadly. Stories about physical or mental disabilities are both welcome. 

the rules: 

  • Stories must stay between 900 and 1000 words
  • All stories must be true, about you, and focus on the theme of disabilities in some way. 
  • All stories should be submitted vis a Word Document (Please no Google Docs or PDFs)
  • All stories should be submitted with a short bio and photo of the author. 

Stories due by May 23rd

Submissions may be emailed to
