The empowerment of women and girls with disabilities: Towards full and effective participation

This series of briefs addresses a range of issues related to the empowerment of women and girls with disabilities. Building on UN Women’s corporate strategy on the issue, the objective of this series is to analyse and assess global trends across various thematic areas from a perspective of gender-responsive disability inclusion.

Each brief provides a knowledge base to support inclusive programme and policy development as well as advocacy in the area of gender equality and disability inclusion. The briefs draw upon knowledge and expertise across the UN system, civil society, and academia.

This series has been developed by UN Women’s Disabilities Team under the UN System Coordination Division.
