New report released: “Making it Work Initiative On Gender and Disability Inclusion”


A new report “Making it Work Initiative on Gender and Disability Inclusion: Advancing equity for women and girls with disabilities” was released in October 2015. Produced by Handicap International in France, this effort brought together a Gender and Disability Global Technical Advisory Committee, consisting mostly of women with disabilities, to identify programs and activities throughout the work that have enjoyed some success in not only raising awareness about violence against girls and women with disabilities but also preventing it by challenging local and state policies and practices that allow such violence to continue.
