COVID-19, gender, and disability checklist: Preventing and addressing gender-based violence against women, girls, and gender non-conforming persons with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic
This checklist is intended to guide stakeholders on how to prevent and respond to gender-based violence against women, girls, and gender non-conforming persons with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic and other emergencies.
UN Women and Women Enabled International developed this “know your rights” guide in consultation with women with disabilities. The purpose of this document is to provide a user-friendly guide for women with disabilites across the globe to understand their rights in accessing support when experiencing gender-based violence and to enable them to advocate with States for their rights.
The present brief discusses the adverse impact of COVID-19 in the ability of women, girls, transgender and gender non-conforming persons with disabilities in meeting basic needs and provides recommendation to stakeholders on how to mitigate adverse effects of pre-existing inequalities they face, including on how to engage with networks and organizations as active agents in the process of “building back”.
