Women with disabilities are amongst the most marginalised and disadvantaged people in the world. The intersection of gender inequality and disability presents a situation of multiple levels of discrimination. We are less likely to be educated, employed and well-housed than almost any other population group. Our Mission is to lead the way for Victorian women with disabilities and improve women’s choices by being a voice for women with disabilities, building partnerships, providing information and educating the community. We focus on those areas which have the biggest impact on women's lives – currently, violence against women with disabilities and access to health care. We also have a secondary focus on parenting rights and employment equality.
