Women Enabled International Launches First Mapping Project

In August 2015, Channel grantee partner Women Enabled international (WEI) launched a survey to help create a first-ever map and report of the field of advocates for the rights of women and girls with disabilities globally. This project will provide an opportunity for collaboration and joint action among human rights advocates, both within and outside the disability rights and women’s rights movements. WEI’s Survey and Mapping project will provide a sense of the scope and depth of the growing global field of disabled women’s rights organizations and advocates, and also serve as an empowering organizing tool to share strategies. This first-ever global report will show where advocates are located, where the gaps are, and where there are opportunities for collaboration to achieve greater collective impact to push for more systemic and inclusive human rights policies.
