Gender, disability and global health: The rights of girls and women with disabilities


Pavillon Chancellor-Day Salle Stephen Scott (OCDH 16), 3644, rue Peel, Montréal, QC, H3A 1W9, CA


(En anglais seulement) Systematic discrimination against women and girls with disabilities continues to result in the denial of the rights to experience their sexuality, to have sexual relationships and to found and maintain families. While the right to integrity and the right of a woman to make her own reproductive choices are contained in a number of international human rights treaties, women with disabilities continue to be denied these rights through practices such as forced sterilization, sexual violence and the removal of their legal capacity in many parts of the world.
