Making It Work new report is now available online!

Entitled "Gender and disability intersectionality in practice: Women and girls with disabilities addressing discrimination and violence in Africa" it is documenting 9 good Practices across Africa. 

The practices are carried out by Disabled Persons’ Organizations (DPOs) and Women’s Organizations and are prime examples of concrete experience on how to address issues faced by women and girls with disabilities.

From those good practices emerged key recommendations targeting States, International Organizations, development actors and stakeholders working on disability and gender-related issues. Through this work, key actors from both the gender equality and the disability rights movements call for the effective prevention and response to the violence experienced by women and girls with disabilities at the national, regional and international level.
