The goal of this article was to have Emirati women with disabilities speak out to share their experiences and successes in struggling with disabilities. Fifteen Emirati women with disabilities were selected from a snowball sample to be interviewed. The resulting data is qualitative. The study revealed several important factors that facilitated the full participation of these Emirati women in domestic and professional life. The study and its findings will help society (its structures, institutions, and the individuals working within them) to better address the needs of Emirati women with disabilities. The researchers of this study are not aware of any previous study that highlights the struggles and successes of Emirati women with disabilities in the fullness of their shared narratives.
