International Network of Women With Disabilities
The INWWD is not an IDA working group, but there is a good co-operation between INWWD and IDA. As INWWD does not yet have its own website, IDA as offered to include this information on its website.
The International Network of Women with Disabilities (INWWD) is comprised of about 200 women from international, regional, national or local organizations, groups or networks of women with disabilities, as well as individual women with disabilities and their allies. The mission of the INWWD is to enable women with disabilities to share our knowledge and experience, enhance our capacity to speak up for our rights, empower ourselves to bring about positive change and inclusion in our communities and to promote our involvement in relevant politics at all levels, towards creating a more just and fair world that acknowledges disability and gender, justice, and human rights.
