Seminar on Women with Disabilities
D.P.I. Italia ONLUS is organising international seminar on “Women, Disability and Health. Reflections on Violence and the Safeguarding of Human Rights”, 14th , 15th and 16th December 2007 in Salerno
D.P.I. Italia ONLUS, in its years of activity, dedicated particular attention to themes of gender in the area of the disability world. Women with disability live in a condition of multiple discrimination: in fact to the discrimination of being persons with disability we must add the one deriving from the gender they belong to. Moreover, we must add a general lack of data on women with disability and the total absence of research and knowledge on issues that regard them and that can produce a real and concrete strategy to confront and solve the problems that they are faced with. Often, therefore, women and young women with disability are invisible citizens in the mainstreaming policies in so much as they are not even considered in policies and actions actuated both in favour of women as well as persons with disability.
