The report, Let Me Decide and Thrive , produced through a collaboration with the UN Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, highlights the perfect storm of discrimination faced by girls with disabilities, which leaves many of them totally unaware of their rights. The failure to address the sexual and reproductive health needs of girls and young women with disabilities often results in them being wrongly perceived as asexual. Girls with disabilities are often infantilised and robbed of the power they need to make decisions about their own lives. It also calls for governments to eliminate the stigma and discrimination preventing girls accessing the services and information they need around sexual and reproductive health. The report is being launched to coincide with International Day of Persons with Disabilities on 3 December The report also shines a light on the lack of reliable data about the number of girls with disabilities.

But I do want activists to pay more attention to the challenges disabled women face. In many African cultures, in particular, women with disabilities are still not respected, even by their families, and there are huge issues when it comes to disabled women taking over or inheriting family wealth. Many people told my parents that I would amount to nothing. I count myself very lucky that they wanted the best for me and believed in me, despite what friends and family said. The lack of disabled role models is a serious problem. Similarly, when we talk about gender and inequality, for example the pay gap , we are still predominantly talking about able-bodied women. Meanwhile, abuse of disabled women remains widespread in many parts of the world, including women with learning difficulties who may find it difficult to articulate their experiences, or be disbelieved when they try.
Triple discrimination against women and girls with disability
Sexuality and relationships Sexuality and relationships But it is an area in which extraneous factors impact strongly on people with disabilities, preventing them from enjoying this aspect of themselves to the full. Without a change in general conditions and attitudes, there is little chance of real equality in relation to sexual matters.
According to the Lancet , the prevalence of violence against women with disabilities and children with disabilities is higher than that among their non-disabled counterparts. A recent meta-analysis on the HIV prevalence among adults with disabilities in Sub-Sahara Africa further suggests that women with disabilities are especially affected by the HIV epidemic. This article summarises the triple discrimination of women and girls with disabilities in relation to HIV and the experience of gender-based violence. As well, testimonies from the field are shared and recommendations for the way forward are suggested.
