World Blind Union Survey on Barriers Facing Women Who Are Blind

Date: 1/12/2018

Would you like to advance the understanding of barriers facing women who are blind in achieving leadership positions?

The World Blind Union (WBU) is an international organization dedicated to ensuring that people who are blind or visually impaired around the world can participate fully in any aspect of life. Recently, a committee was created to focus on the unique needs of women who are blind or visually impaired. To kick off their efforts, the women’s committee drafted a survey to better understand the needs of women in achieving leadership positions around the world.

If you are interested in helping the committee by answering this survey, please fill out the linked word document and send it to You only need to answer those questions that you feel comfortable with.

AFB is not involved in the creation of the survey or its data collection. For further information, please direct inquiries to or visit
