In March 2020, Women Enabled International identified a gap in initial global responses to COVID-19, in that many actors were discussing how to include women and persons with disabilities in the response, but few were considering the unique experiences of women with disabilities and others living at the intersection of gender and disability.
This report, which pulls together responses to a global survey from 100 women, non-binary, and trans persons with disabilities across the globe, seeks to provide the guidance States, U.N agencies, and others need to respond to this crisis in a way that fully respects, protects, and fulfills rights at the intersection of gender and disability.
Ana Maria Sanchez Rodriguez contributed by analysing survey results and translating the paper into Spanish and plain English.
