WWDA Youth Network has created Human Rights Resources to help young women and girls with disabilities learn about their human rights. If you are a woman or girl with disabilities and would like to learn more about your human rights and how they can be used to achieve change in your life or the lives of others, these resources are for you.
Thanks to all the young people who contributed to the development of these resources!
The WWDA Youth Human Rights Workbook is a resource for
young women and girls with disabilities who want to know more about their rights.
The workbook explains all the articles of Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Violence Against Women (CEDAW) in easy to understand language.
The development of the WWDA Youth Network Human Rights Workbook for Women and Girls with Disabilities was made possible through project funding from the Australian Government Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet.
