Gender, age, and incapacity: Addressing the intersection | Publications

More mature girls encounter discrimination, bias, and marginalization, as identified by the Basic Suggestion Amount 27 of the Conference on the Elimination of Discrimination Towards Women of all ages.

This discrimination, bias, and marginalization is only even more compounded for more mature women of all ages with disabilities. They are systematically forgotten and underrepresented in development procedures, programmes, initiatives, legislation, as well as humanitarian efforts.

In addition, gender inequality, ageism, and ableism are further exacerbated by other forms of discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, caste, faith, migration status, among the other things.

By focusing on the intersection of gender, age, and incapacity, this brief seeks to elevate consciousness with regards to the circumstance of more mature women with disabilities and presents a set of suggestions for actions that stakeholders may well take into account and carry out.

This publication is component of the “Briefs on gals and girls with disabilities series”.
