Equality between man and women, girls, and women with disabilities (GWWDs) have a higher risk of abuse and sexual violence and are less likely to receive an education, health care and even to be employed, compared to man or woman without disabilities. They often face triple discrimination due to their disabilities, sex, and previously disadvantaged status in society.
Most persons with disabilities, especially girls and women, live in a condition of long-term poverty. They are discriminated against not only by the wider community but also by their family members. Girls and women because of their vulnerability for being disabled experience heightened discrimination on account of gender. For instance, some men sneak into their houses or give money to take the chance to exploit them sexually at night. Use them for their sexual satisfaction and threaten them not to tell anyone about it.
The majority of GWWDs are illiterate and can’t access any form of employment due to lack of education and skills as well as an increased stigma.
Mothers Club Organization ratified the convention of the rights of persons with disabilities on the 15 days of march, 2020. The (CRPDs) place emphasis on the importance of mainstreaming disability issues as an integral part of relevant strategies of sustainable development on the rights of persons with disabilities and the adopted agenda 2030 has sustainable development goals (SDGs). The SDGs place particular emphasis on addressing the needs of persons with disabilities including education, employment/self-employed and participation in the economic development for better standards of living and good health.
In support of SDGs, Mothers Club Organization has adopted a conducive legislative and policy environment, addressing the needs of vulnerable communities and persons with disabilities.
