Women with Disabilities in Europe and Worldwide

Changing Things - Step by Step

The living situation

of women with disabilities worldwide is different from that of men with disabilities. Globally, girls and women with disabilities are affected by greater poverty, by sexual violence, and by less accessibility to ressources.

Representatives from the association Weibernetz repeatedly take part in European or international conferences to stay in touch with other women, to fight for the same rights, and to empower each other.
