Human Rights Toolkit for Women and Girls with Disability

Women with Disabilities Australia (WWDA) launches a new Human Rights Toolkit for Women and Girls with Disability

 Women with Disabilities Australia (WWDA) is a national organisation representing women and girls with disability in Australia. Over the past six months, WWDA has researched, developed and now published a suite of resources that focus on key human rights issues for women and girls with disabilities that they believe warrant urgent attention from governments, the broader disability, women’s and human rights sectors and from women with disabilities themselves.

These key issues include:

  • The right to freedom from all forms of violence
  • The right to decision-making
  • The right to participation
  • Sexual and reproductive rights
  • Economic empowerment

WWDA’s resource materials explore these key issues facing women and girls with disability and to provide practical information for leading change and WWDA strongly encourages everyone to access and use their resources in our individual and collective efforts to advance the human rights of women and girls with disability. The suite of resources is available free of charge from WWDA’s website.
