2nd Manifesto on the Rights of Women and Girls with Disabilities in the European Union

13.06.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

The 2nd Manifesto on the Rights of Women and Girls with Disabilities in the European Union is a toolkit for activists and policymakers aiming at promoting the equal rights of all women and girls with disabilities in Europe. It is divided into eighteen thematic areas, each of which focuses on one of the articles in the UNCRPD (UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities) and attempts to fulfil five key goals: outline the current situation faced by women and girls with disabilities in the area covered, set forth their demands in terms of direct attention, suggest areas for improvement in communities, propose areas where study and research is needed to gain a clear understanding of the specific situation women and girls with disabilities find themselves in, and briefly present an analysis of the key issues related to legislation in the area in question. Although chapter 16 deals with the intersectionality of relevant factors related to gender and disability and the manifesto includes specific chapters addressing some of these, throughout the document there are many references to girls, older women, accessibility and violence against women, among others, which are looked at from different approaches.
