On April 8, 2019, IDA in collaboration with EDF held a virtual panel bringing together prominent women with disabilities from different walks of life. The virtual panel with 572 registered participants was an effort to provide space and prevent any loss of momentum in promoting the rights of women and girls with disabilities in the global gender equality agenda. During the virtual discussion, the panelists have discussed various topics ranging from the inclusion of women and girls with disabilities into mainstream gender mainstreaming strategies, multiple forms of discrimination faced by women and girls with various forms of disability, and the impact of the current pandemic on their well-being. Some of the featured quoted are listed below.
